Discover the HERO Within

what is HERO Boys™

HERO Boys™ is a youth development and engagement program for boys in 3rd – 5th grades.  Using running as a base activity HERO Boys™ inspires boys to discover the character and courage that resides inside each one of them to be brave, stand for that which is right, and use their talents and strengths to lead and set the positive example amongst their peers.  The school-based program is 7 or 8 weeks long and culminates with a local 5K including boys from all schools participating in the program.
