About This Activity

The National Inclusion Project is hosting its first annual 5K event and one-mile fun run/walk in Harrisburg, PA!! In addition to the race, we’ll have a kids’ zone and music making this event the ideal block party and fun for all ages! A hero theme sets the stage as we work together to support inclusion within our community and beyond! We encourage everyone to get into character by dressing up as their favorite hero.

Who are your heroes?
Heroes come in many forms.  For some, it's their local firemen and police officers.  For others, it's Captain America. Our heroes at the National Inclusion Project are children, parents, and advocates living with and working to make inclusion the expectation and not the exception. Whomever your hero is, let that show! Costumes are optional, but highly encouraged. Top costume winners will receive a prize following the close of both races.
