Event description

Description

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's an…Assurance Superhero? Grab your mask and best superhero costume to join us for the We Can Be Heroes Assurance 5K Walk/Run. Walk, run or fly through the tree-covered trails of Busse Woods on Saturday, May 18, 2019.

This event is all about encouraging health and wellness, while also giving back. We’ll be giving 100% of proceeds to Saving tiny Hearts Society, an Assurance Caring Together (ACT) partner. Saving tiny Hearts Society is passionately dedicated to eliminating congenital heart defects (CHDs), the #1 birth defect worldwide, to improve, prolong and save the lives of countless children born with CHDs.

Know of a bunch of superheroes who want to make a difference? Register with your family and friends! Your participation requires a $25 registration fee or $35 if you register after Friday, May 10. Kids 17 and under are free. Registration will close Friday, May 17, at noon. We will not accept day-of registrants.

Even if you can't attend, you can still donate and be a hero! Arriving in a full hero costume is encouraged, but capes and masks will be provided should you need one.

We look forward to seeing all our superheroes on race day!
