These are just a few words that described Shannon Heil, a full-time student who also worked full-time delivering pizzas, and who further made time to train (and win!) at the highest levels of competitive cheerleading.     She was determined to do more – to make her mark on this world – in everything she did.  She picked up the moniker “Fierce” on the cheer mat because of her bright red hair, her precise, athletic and graceful movements and because she was tall and powerful. From a distance, Shannon Heil was a commanding presence.  In conversation, even more so.    The Fierce Five was created to memorialize Shannon’s determination, strength and spirit. We purposely chose a location that will test one’s core and endurance levels, just as Shannon was always challenging herself to do. Basically, it had to be FIERCE!! We hope you enjoy the race, but also enjoy the music, new friends you’ll meet and most of all learn a little  more about an amazing young lady who squeezed every moment out of life and left her mark on this world.    Taken from her Twitter post three months before she died:  "It’s your story. Make it worthwhile. Make it something to remember.”   All proceeds from the Fierce Five goes to the Fierce For Shannon Foundation. The Foundation will

award scholarships and grants to individuals and groups whose work ethic, drive and determination 

align with the way Shannon lived her life.  In the simplest of terms: we will fund fierce.   The Fierce For Shannon Foundation is a recognized nonprofit in the state of Rhode Island.  Our recognition as a 501(c)3 charity is pending.
    If you’re not from the local community and wish to run/walk for Shannon, you can.  Register to participate Virtually!! Here’s how:   (Then the Virtual Information)




What is the Virtual Race. A virtual race can be done at any venue that you wish. You can walk, jog, skip or run the distance of your choice. You can complete your race at the gym on a treadmill, a practice run in town, a stroll in the park, or another local racing event. Simply sign up for the virtual event, and a bib # will be mailed to you. Once you complete your distance, just email us a photo with your number and time , and we will send you the race day t-shirt and the medal. ( Note: you do not need to email us proof, but it would be nice to receive something to post on our website) The price of the virtual race is slightly  higher, to cover the cost of the mailing
