The Heroes for Children (HFC) 5K Run/Walk fundraiser will be held September 7, at The Shops of Legacy, in Plano. The HFC event is held each year as a fundraiser in the recognition and promotion of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month within the community.
Designed to be a family friendly experience, entries of all ages can run or walk
as an individual, team or family. The opening ceremonies at 7:30 a.m. include a balloon release representing the families served by HFC over the past year.
The run/walk kicks off with the 1K Family Fun Run at 7:45 a.m., followed by the 5K Run/Walk at 8:15 and an award ceremony at 9:15. Activities throughout the morning include entertainment, prizes and awards, giveaways, bounce houses, face painting, live music and more. Food and beverages will be available.
The main focus of HFC is to provide support to families with children battling cancer through direct financial assistance. Anyone raising $150 or more in donations for HFC can have their entry fee waived by agreeing to raise the required funds when registering. All funds must be raised by September 6.
