About This Activity

Every Individual has what it takes to be a hero! The “Be A Hero Run” originated because of one boy’s vision—a boy who saw that being a Hero was not about capes and powers but about living for others on a daily basis. The A Hero's Impact Foundation is based upon building the dream of mentoring children from all walks of life in the Greater St. Louis area. The Be A Hero 5K Run will benefit the A Hero's Impact Foundation and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
Be A Hero 5K Run is a timed race that will be a great addition to any avid runners summer list, complete with fun activities and incredible prizes for the entire family.

This will be a night run so wear your brightest colors!

This Charity Run will benefit A Hero’s Impact Foundation & St. Louis Children’s Hospital
A Hero’s Impact Foundation is a Metro –East Charity supporting the needs of at-risk youth and is in the planning stages of building a mentoring left in the greater St. Louis area.
