CALLING ALL SUPER HEROES!  This event is for Heston, a seven-year-old with a SUPER spirit who suffers from Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome, a bone marrow failure disorder which also leads to multi-organ failure.  This will cover his medical expenses and travel to receive treatment.  Visit Heston’s Heroes Unite on Facebook.  Register NOW at HestonsHeroes5K.It’sYourRace.com.  $25 registration fee, $35 on race day.  What’s in it for you?  Super Hero Capes to the first 200 entrants of either race.  Custom Finisher Medals to the first 200 5K finishers.  Two automatic entries into the HUGE raffle pool.  You MUST be present to win.  Overall awards to the Top Male and Top Female winners.  Heston and thousands like him need a bone marrow match.  This is a bone marrow drive, as well.  If you decide to participate on race day, it is a FREE, SIMPLE, PAINLESS cheek swab to be tested.  For more information, visit DKMS.org and check out the FAQ section.  Virtual participation can also help by requesting a FREE kit from DKMS.
