We would love for everyone to walk in support of their favorite caregiver or walk in costume of your favorite Superhero (or even Villain). All proceeds will go to support Mississippi Heroes in their Mission of Celebrating Caregivers by giving them a day off of fun and relaxation, or a care basket full of items that will offer them what they need to know they are supported, loved & hopefully something to relax with a portion of proceeds also going to the Lt. Michael Boutte Fund and Cayce Seal Fund.
