Come out and conquer the Save the Day 5k on May 30th!
We are hosting a 5k run, 1 mile fun run, and live music making this event the ideal block party. The superhero theme sets the stage as we work together to support inclusion within our community and beyond! We encourage everyone to get into character by dressing up as their favorite super hero.
