We are looking forward to hosting our 9th Annual Superhero 5K & Fun Run on May 1st, 2021 at Hains Point, as we kick off National Foster Care Month. This family-friendly fundraising event celebrates the everyday superheroes that make a positive impact in the lives of DC's youth in foster care. Proceeds from this event will all go toward supporting our mentoring program for local youth in foster care.
We are really excited to see our superheroes for our in-person race on May 1st. We are taking numerous safety measures including sanitizing stations, providing masks, enforcing social distancing, and operating under a staggered race start procedure. We are also closely monitoring government guidelines to ensure safety for all and will notify participants of any mandated changes that may occur as applicable. Our virtual option for participation is still available throughout the month of May for anybody who prefers not to attend our in-person event.
