Traditional 5k run/walk
5k including 11 overall stations led by trainers from local gyms, which will take participants through mini workouts during the 5k.
Kids 1k obstacle adventure run as well.

This is a dog friendly event so please bring the whole household out to join in the fun!

Working with Camp Hometown Heroes, it is our desire to bring HONOR and ENCOURAGEMENT to children and families of fallen service members across the nation. Camp Hometown Heroes provides 2 week-long summer camp sessions and other healing programs for children ages 7-17. Since 9/11 over 5,000 children have lost a parent who served in the military. Our goal is to support as many of these children as possible.  THANK YOU for your support and contributing in this way!
