The 9th Annual Impact A Hero 5K Run/Walk/Wheel will be held Saturday May 18th at 7:30 a.m. at the new location - Reliant Stadium. The race will feature a 5K Competitive/Timed Run, 5K Non-Competitive Run, 5K Wheel and a 2 mile Walk.
Last year was another record breaking year as we exceeded our fundraising goal and increased our participation numbers once again. By raising over $400,000 last year we reached our cumulative total of almost $1,500,000 for our Heroes and their families!
The Heroes and their families face new challenges as they return home and have needs that Impact A Hero helps address through requests made by the Heroes. Grant requests are reviewed by a subcommittee of the Board of Directors and quickly approved or disapproved to get the grant to the Heroes as quickly as possible. Often the Board approves the request within 24 to 48 hours, getting much needed funds to the Heroes shortly thereafter.
