About This Activity

Foundation 4 Heroes is a 501c.3 nonprofit organization that has had the opportunity to visit 1000s of children and Veterans over the years. Travelling to many communities and states, these superhero volunteers bring gifts and smiles to patients of all ages in hospitals, visit schools to teach children how to be a hero and about bullying and find ways to honor and thank Veterans.

This race offers supporters of Foundation 4 Heroes an opportunity to help them continue their mission to inspire children and honor Veterans. 

Who's your HERO? This is a fun event that was created so individuals could do something good for others while taking a moment to Remember someone dear to them who has passed, Inspire a friend or loved one fighting disease or Honor a Veteran from the past or present for their courage, service and sacrifice to our country.

Please join us on October 12th for Race 4 Heroes. 

Wear a super hero costume and be apart of the first Race 4 Heroes 5K Walk, Run, Roll or Fly. Tie those capes tight, bring your hero spirit and join other heroes as you complete a 5-kilometer run or walk through beautiful Solomons Island.

Divisions  - 11 & Under, 12-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-54, 55-64, 65+.
