Join Candlelighters For Children With Cancer at it's 6th Annual SUPERHERO 5K Run/Walk. It's a morning of fun for the whole family with a 5K Run/Walk, Kid's Superhero-In-Training Obstacle Challenge, themed family activities, therapy animals, and SUPERHEROES from throughout the community.

Suit up in your favorite superhero costume and recruit your friends, family and co-workers to join you in support of regular kids fighting extraordinarily tough battles! 

YOU have the power. Sign up as an individual or take the next step and form a team, or take a giant LEAP and fundraise to support the 5,000+ family members  Candlelighters supports annually.

New this year - Kid's Obstacle Course: This fun .35 mile course will include nine obstacles on grass, sand and pavement. Kids ages 4-12 will weave through barrels, under and over poles, across balance beams, and through hoops to gain their Superhero In Training goody bags at the finish line. Event will be in heats by age group (4-5, 7, 8 & 9-12). Register on-line, at packet pick up locations, or on-site.

Parents of 4-6 year olds participants can be on the course. Otherwise, for safety reasons, we ask that you take photos and encourage your child from the sideline.

Cost: $10 (Free for any youth 4-12 signed up for the 5K. No need to sign up separately!)
