About This Activity

STRONGER than Cancer Young Hero 5k Run/Walk (a timed event) is family-friendly and great for all ages. A beautiful certified 5k course, filled with superheroes, goes through downtown Abacoa and ends at home plate in Roger Dean Stadium! Superheroes (live and standup) serve as homage to the brave young heroes fighting for their lives, as do beads (hope, strength, resilience and bravery) that athletes earn along the way.

A 1-mile family friendly walk along part of the same course (same start) is also available. Kids will enjoy the Kidz Fun Zone with a giant water slide and various games. Inside the stadium, young cancer patients will run either the Young Hero 100 yard dash or the 10 yard Diaper Dash for our very littlest patients of 2 years or younger. 50 kids will be able to run the actual bases.

Compete in our contests: Best Fundraising Team, Best Team Name, Best Superhero Costume, and Best Pet Costume.

Last year’s event was great. This year’s event will be AWESOME! This year we have teamed up with Palm Beach Broadcasting, the owner of seven local radio stations: 97.9 WRMF, 102.3 WMBX, Country 103.1 WIRK, Sunny 107.9 WEAT, Beatz 96.3, 640 am WMEN and 850 WFLN. Not only will these stations broadcast STRONGER than Cancer Young Heroes 5k announcements for the entire month prior to the event, but an on-air personality from 97.9 WRMF will be present at STRONGER than Cancer Young Heroes 5k to entertain the crowd.
