Heroes For Health


We will have a sign up spot at the gym for anyone who is interested in this great event that is put on by the Whitney M. Young Jr. Health Services:

Grab your friends (and your cape!) and sign up to race for health on Sunday, July 14, 2013 at Prospect Park, Troy, NY! Like we said, this is not your average run....for 2 miles, you will crawl, leap, duck and maybe even fly into the finish, all while being a hero for health! Costumes are encouraged and there will be prizes, so tape that “S” on your chest! All proceeds will go to support health care for the more than 20,000 men, women and children Whitney M. Young, Jr. Health Services treats each year!
We have been hard at work planning our upcoming Whitney M. Young, Jr. Health Services fundraising event -Heroes for Health - and we wanted to share the details with you!

This event is a 2 mile superhero themed obstacle run designed for young professionals and those young at heart! This exhilarating fundraiser will be held at the beautiful Prospect Park in Troy on Sunday, July 14. We hope for this event to bring out the superhero in all of us, not only by completing each obstacle, but by doing so, helping our patients overcome their own obstacles. 

We would love to have as many runners and spectators as possible, so please share with family and friends!

Superhero costumes are encourage and there will be prizes for best costume and best race times!

$35 per runner
$30 per runner for teams of 2 or more
