What makes our race special: We welcome participants of all ages and abilities.
The Heritage Centers 5K embraces the uniqueness of every individual and celebrates the differences in our community. Our 5K truly suits many needs – it is timed for the avid runner, welcomes families with young children, and allows individuals with walkers and wheelchairs to participate in a community recreation opportunity.
When participating in our 5K, you will see so many diverse participants; this is something we are proud of and hope our community can take part in as we share the great work of Heritage Centers and spread the message of acceptance.
