Virtual CASA Be a Hero 5k

Sat August 15 - Sat August 22 Directions
We've gone virtual!

We've gone virtual. Participate from anywhere!
Complete a 5k run or walk anytime between 8/15 and 8/22. We will send instructions on how to submit times (you can also select an untimed option). Because we have gone virtual, we will be using the honor system with timing, and awards will not be offered to age group or overall winners. (You're all winners in our book!)

Thank you for understanding. We hope to see you in 2021.

Your race entries and donations will be utilized to recruit and train new volunteers in Defiance, Henry, and Williams Counties to advocate for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Thank you for helping us change a child's story. 

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon. 

We will transfer your registration to the 2021 once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person CASA Be A Hero 5k, and turn it into a virtual race. If you're already signed up for the 5k, please visit your RunSignUp profile and choose your 2020 race options: Virtual, donate the registration fee, or defer to 2021.

We will be delivering or sending out t-shirts for anyone who participates in the virtual 5k within 2 weeks after the final day of the virtual race (August 22nd) We have decided to forego medals in order to optimize the donations we receive. Remember, your donations will allow us to recruit and train additional volunteers in Defiance, Henry, and Williams Counties to advocate for children who have been abused or neglected. We realize this is a difficult time, so we have made sure to offer an option to defer the race to 2021.
