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 and includes a t-shirt. 

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
