About This Activity

"5K for HEROES" is a 5K run/walk/obstacle race donating 100% of the proceeds to the families of fallen heroes.  This year the proceeds will be split and donated to the 100 Club of Arizona & to Camp Hometown Heroes. Both organizations support children and families of fallen HEROES.

 

This 5k will feature 4 options:

  • Traditional 5k run/walk
  • 5k including 10 overall stations/obstacles
  • Kids 1k obstacle adventure run as well.
  • Run "Virtually" on any date at any location.

 

 

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

Working with the 100 Club of Arizona and Camp Hometown Heroes, it is our desire to bring HONOR and ENCOURAGEMENT to children and families of fallen service members and first responders.

The 100 Club of Arizona's mission is to provide financial assistance to families of first responders who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty and provide resources to enhance their safety and welfare.

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 families as possible. 

THANK YOU for your support and contributing in this way!
