About This Activity
This year's walk for Intermountain Healing Hearts is special. We've coordinated with a great partner, Geek'd Out Events, to make this year more special and with more impact. If you'd like to updrage to the Potter Run registration and get their special shirts and medals for this race click here. If not, just register for this race to get the IHH race shirt.
We will be doing the race at the West Jordan Veterans Memorial park again. Each registered participant will recieve a special tshirt. The Geek'd Out Events race is the same time and day and is benefitting Intermountain Helaing Hearts! Their race is called The Potter Run and they have around 800+ runners come out in costume to race for a great cause. This year we are that cause.
So on top of enjoying the special traditions we've had in the past including the Angels Ceremony you can also enjoy a chance to take pictures with your favorite Harry Potter characters, play some Quidditch, meet live owls and snakes, and play on the castle playground. There will be a large silent auction you can participate in as well. Stick around for the award ceremony and the costume contest. The very special "Angel Memorial ceremony" will include a butterfly release but this year the extra participants are planning on raising wands in a show of respect for this as well.
After everything else grab some breakfast from the Healing Hearts volunteers and enjoy much more of the fun festivities!
