Superman socks, $13 at Target
Bust out your Batman glasses, Spiderman suit, or Superman cape for the Be A Hero 5K run/walk (5K or 2-K) on Sunday, April 13. Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero or wear their favorite superhero t-shirt for the race to be held at Beach No. 1 at Presque Isle State Park.
Why the capes and superhero garb? Because the race benefits the Erie Community Child Abuse Task Force,* which consists of various agencies and organizations that deal with child abuse, and they say that each and every one of us have the ability to be a hero to a child.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three males and females. (no age group awards). You have a choice of a 2K run/walk for families and youth in grades K-8 or a 5K run for adults and children in grades 7-12. Cost is $20 for adults and $15 for students before April 1, $5 more after.
