Be a hero in the eyes of Cunningham kids!

We had so much fun last year, we are doing it again in 2022!

Join us Saturday, October 1, 2022 for Cunningham Children’s Home Be a Hero 5K.

Whether you move like “The Flash” or at “ Hulk” speed, the Be a Hero 5K is open to runners and walkers of all skill levels. Race registration is just $25. 

Feeling like a Superhero?  
Participants who raise $100 will receive a Cunningham Hero Cape! And, your race registration fee counts towards your goal. Wear your official Cunningham Hero Cape on race day or anytime you are being a hero in your community! This 5K Run/Walk will be tons of fun benefitting a great cause.

How does $100 make a difference at Cunningham?

  • $100 in our residential programs cover art, music and recreation therapy for our kids
  • $100 in our special education programs will help cover the cost of sensory sets for classrooms.
  • $100 in our community services programs will cover the cost of a “startup kit” for youth transitioning into independent living; items include pots, pans, silverware, cleaning supplies, lamps, towels and other household items that will make their first living space feel like home.

All funds raised through the Be a Hero 5K help to meet the critical needs of the 794 youth, individuals and families served by Cunningham. Young people are referred to Cunningham for many reasons, including a history of abuse, neglect, trauma, and mental health issues. Many have experienced rejection and loss. Cunningham offers opportunities for healing and hope across our three areas of services – residential treatment, special education and community-based services. More information about how our programs help youth and families to heal, learn and grow, can be found at cunninghamhome.org
