This is SO much more than a race! This is an awesome event to honor and celebrate the cancer journeys of brave young cancer warriors. This is a beautiful certified 5k course through downtown Abacoa. The course is flat and fast, and lined with superheroes (bring your camera!). Bring your friends and start a team.

There’s a prize for Best Team Name, Best Fundraiser, Best Fundraising Team, Best Superhero Costume (Adult), Best Superhero Costume (10-18), Best Superhero Costume (10 & under), and Best Dog Costume.

During the 5k course, athletes will earn beads along the way that honor a child’s cancer journey:

  • Blue Beads for HOPE

  • Red Beads for STRENGTH

  • Green Beads for RESILIENCE and TENACITY

  • GOLD Beads for BRAVERY at the Finish Line. Gold is the color of childhood cancer.  Show your colors!

Participants of the untimed 1 mile Fun Run (or Walk) will also get GOLD Beads at the Finish!

This family-friendly event also has an amazing Kidz Fun Zone for the young and young at heart. Kids between ages 4 and 10 can run the 100 yard Young Hero Dash, while kids under 4 can participate in the 10 yard Diaper Dash.
