About the Heritage Hero 5K + Mile Stroll & Roll
The Heritage Hero event is a one mile walk and a 5K that supports more than 1,800 children and adults with developmental disabilities. The event is held at Monroe Community College in Brighton.
Heroes are those who make us proud and help us become better people. Their warm spirit and positive outlook on life inspires everyone around them. Honor a family member enlisted in the armed forces, or a survivor of a serious illness. Maybe you’ll participate for a loved one whose spirit burns brightly despite their passing. WHO IS YOUR HERO YOU’LL BE HONORING?
The 3.1 mile course is fast and fairly flat as it wraps the MCC campus.
