A Hero’s 5k was founded in 2010 and is a 5k walk/run held annually in March at North Greenville University to remember all of the soldiers who fought, died, and lived for our great country.
A Hero’s 5K, Inc. was founded to raise awareness of the sacrifices made each day by the United States military personnel and to raise money to support the needs of South Carolina servicemen and women and their families. A Hero’s 5K walk/run is held annually at North Greenville University in memory of SPC. Geoffrey Whitsitt who was killed in action on January 13, 2010. A Hero’s 5K has grown into an organization of dedicated volunteer staff and it provides a vehicle to a world-wide community allowing them to be part of that loving care – reaching out to help other hurting military veterans and their families.
A Hero’s 5K is a 501(c)3 organization. For more information about A Hero’s 5K, Inc.
