The 11th Run with the Heroes 5K is scheduled for Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 8 a.m. The event, which will be held at Camp Mabry (2200 W. 35th St), honors fallen heroes from fire, EMS and police agencies and their families, in addition to those who protect and serve the Austin-area communities. This year’s honoree is Officer Ken Copeland of the San Marcos Police Department.
“The Run with the Heroes run/walk offers our community and first responders with a unique opportunity to lace up our running and walking shoes in memory of fallen heroes while supporting Central Texas Special Olympians. These exceptional athletes are an inspiration to all who wear a uniform for the dedication, grit and heart they show both in competition and in the way they live their lives each day.” said Brian Manley, APD Chief of Police.
Runners and walkers of all levels are invited to participate in this wonderful event. Sign-up is available online at https://runsignup.com/Race/TX/Austin/RWTH. Proceeds from the race will benefit Special Olympics Texas. Run with the Heroes is hosted by the Austin Police Department.
