Event details and schedule


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.

An-air personality from WRMF 97.9 will be present at STRONGER than Cancer Young Heroes 5k to entertain the crowd.

Last year’s event was great. This year’s event will be AWESOME!


This will be a timed run on a certified 5k course. Or feel free to join us as an “fun” walker/runner. If you can’t be with us in person, join us as a “virtual runner”.
