Superhero Fun Run 5K

This will be an incredible family fun morning with a 5K timed run/walk. ½ mile kids fun run, bounce house, music, sponsor vendors & more! All of the proceeds will go directly to serve the at risk children of the Frank Callen Boys & Girls Clubs, right here in Savannah.  Come out and be a Superhero to our kids for the day! We are also bringing in local military, police & firefighters – lets bridge the gap & show our kids that we honor Savannah’s real “superheroes” while at the same time helping out Savannah’s highest risk children.  Dress up as your favorite hero & show our kids that Together We Can Be The Greatest Superhero Team for Savannah’s Children.  What an amazing opportunity for the entire Savannah Community to come together as a Superhero Team.  Get your Halloween superhero costumes out a week early & join our Frank Callen Superhero Team!!!

Race Proceeds: 

For 98 years, the Frank Callen Boys & Girls Clubs have served Savannah’s highest risk children from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstance.  Each year, we work with more than 1,000 children to ensure the success of our mission of enabling all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. With gang & crime related violence on the rise here in Savannah, if we have these children here with us, in our arms, they are less likely to end up on the streets. 33% of Savannah’s children live in poverty! Which means they are 6 times more likely to drop out of school and get involved with gangs & crime. You can help us change those statistics, and, instead give our kids a bright future! We serve our children through developmental activities & services focusing on academic success, sports & fitness, character & leadership training & healthy lifestyles. We only charge a mere $10 annual fee – however it costs way more than that to provide those services. Our programs work! 78% of our kids ore on grade level, 93% expected to finish high school, & 88 % intend to go on to college! You can help us make a difference in our children’s lives – RUN THE RACE & BE A SUPERHERO FOR OUR KIDS!
