About This Event
The 5th Annual RACERS Superhero 5K is proud to support our local community, with every dollar raised staying right here in the Twin Cities! Proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton Harbor. Now, more than ever, the Clubs need the support of our community to continue to meet the demand to provide a safe place for our youth to learn and grow.
Again in 2017, we ask that you join us to celebrate and recognize those Everyday Superheros that protect and serve us each day...whether it be armed forces defending our country, public safety personnel, and medical staff. After all.... SUPERHEROES DON'T ALWAYS WEAR A CAPE!
