2017 Hero Dash 5K & Fun Run
What is the inspiration for the Hero Dash 5K and Fun Run? Cherokee County Children! We are hopeful to bring awareness of child abuse and neglect in Cherokee County, the need for foster homes, and the need for volunteers to help children and families involved with Child Welfare Services. We believe it takes a community to make a difference and are hopeful this run is a big step! All proceeds go toward Christmas gifts, clothing, school supplies, personal hygiene items, and other needs for our kids. The run begins and ends at Norris Park on April 1, 2017. 5K @ 8:30 $25 with shirt, Fun Run @ 8:00 $15 with shirt. Wings members are eligible for a $5 discount. Save A Senior Route 5K. Must pre-register to get a shirt. Money raised goes to Cherokee County children with Child Welfare Involvement. Donations of new/in package children socks, underwear, and baby items of all kinds are requested. Sanctioned and Timed through Tatur Racing. Awards will be issued for each age group and division! We do not issue refunds under any circumstances as money raised goes to deprived Cherokee County children. The logistics of setting up and planning the event make refunds impossible. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up. If for some reason you cannot attend race day, your t-shirt will not be saved. What happens if there is bad weather? A little rain won't stop the Hero Dash 5K! If there are major weather warnings check the event Facebook page with updates. In the event severe weather, the event will be rescheduled for another date.
