10th Annual Heroes for Children Heart of Gold 5K & Fun Run

The Heroes for Children Heart of Gold 5K and Fun Run is a fundraiser for Heroes for Children.

The Heart of Gold has much meaning.  It represents our children battling cancer, precious as gold, and the incredible strength they show throughout the cancer journey. It also represents a heart full of childhood cancer awareness, the heart of each of our supporters that participate and raise money to further the mission of Heroes for Children, and those who surround our families with support. For those of you who have been with us the past year, two years, or ten years, YOU are the Hearts of Gold that put the genuine meaning into this name. 5K veterans, and new participants alike – we look forward to celebrating your Hearts of Gold this September!

The 5K is held in September to recognize and promote Childhood Cancer Awareness Month within the community.  It is designed to be a “family friendly” event in which young or old can participate.  The event starts with our annual commemorative balloon release led by co-founders Jenny & Larissa celebrating the families we helped in 2013 followed by the Family Fun Run and 5K. In addition to the 5K & Fun Run, enjoy entertainment, fantastic prizes and awards, giveaways, and food.  Listen to the DJ spin while the kids play in the all new Adventure Zone sponsored by Create Church - including bounce houses, clowns, face painting, a rock climbing wall and so much more.

The 10th Annual Heroes for Children Heart of Gold 5K will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014.  In celebration of our 10th Anniversary we've moved locations! Our new location is The Plaza at Galatyn Park in Richardson, Texas.
