A Hero-Sized Impact

A Hero-Sized Impact

The numbers are in and we are thrilled to announce YOUR hero-sized impact from the Be a Hero 5K! YOU helped us raise $13,514.02 in net proceeds to support Cunningham youth and families! THANK YOU to all of our race participants, sponsors, volunteers, cheerleaders along the route and Cunningham supporters who made our first ever 5K event a smashing success! 

Our Superheros

Participants who raised $100 received and wore their official Cunningham Hero Cape during the race and can anytime they are being a hero in our community! 

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, adults and families served by Cunningham.
