The Heroes Run is an annual event that includes a 5K run/walk, obstacle course, and kids fun run. The Heroes Run is produced by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Clara County Fire Department, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and the Valley Medical Center Foundation. The event started in
2013, to not only provide a fun and healthy activity for our community, but also to raise much needed funds that directly benefit children’s health services at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, the largest provider of healthcare to low-income communities in Silicon Valley.
The run will be held at the Cupertino Civic Center on November 3rd, 2018. Participants are invited to dress as their favorite hero or superhero, or simply come out and support the heroes in their life.
This event is jam-packed with activities:
-Superhero Kids Fun Run (ages 2-7)
-Hero Dash Obstacle Course (with new obstacles added each year!)
-Kids & Family Costume Contest
-Superheroes along the way thanks to Heroes4Hope
-A head-to-head race between the Sheriff's Office & Fire Department
-Helicopter & Superhero Landing
-Classic & Modern Sheriff & Fire Department Vehicles (you can even sit in them for photos!)
-And much more!
The Heroes Run has been a great resource for the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center Hospital & Clinics. So far we have been able to provide new TV's and wiring for the pediatric department, play cubes for clinic waiting rooms, toys for children in the hospital during the holidays, formula measuring spoons for families who cannot afford them, and this year we hope to provide more!
