Dress Up And Run In The Youth Challenge Superhero Dash

The Youth Challenge Superhero Dash, the 29th Annual Race Day in memory of former Trustee Dave Hardman, will take place Saturday, September 20 at Lakewood Park, 14532 Lake Ave.

The Superhero Dash will raise funds for Youth Challenge (YC), a nonprofit that provides adapted sports and recreational opportunities to children with physical disabilities. Trained teen volunteers are paired one-on-one with participants to play, socialize and have fun. YC serves children throughout Northeast Ohio and has offices in Westlake and Shaker Heights.

The 5K run kicks off at 9:15 a.m. and the 1 Mile Walk/Roll starts at 10 a.m. Awards will go to the top three men and women overall and in each age group, as well as the challenged division. Achievement ribbons will go to all 1 Mile finishers. There will be prizes for best costumes, so be sure to dress up as your favorite superhero.

Event participation is $15 per person for early registration, $20 on Race Day, $10 for children 18 and under (pre-registered and same day). First 300 registrants will receive T-shirts. Register online at hermescleveland.com.
