Join us for the 17th Annual Heroes 5k!

  • 5K run/walk round the scenic Okeeheelee Park
  • Medals and t-shirts for all participants

Following recommendations by the governor to limit large social gatherings due to public health concerns raised by COVID-19, we have made the decision to not hold the CHS Heroes 5K Walk/Run on April 25 at Okeeheelee Park.

The good news is, we’re going virtual!

A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run on our originally scheduled race day of April 25 or any other day of that week that works best for you.  After your run, we encourage you to post pictures or video of your accomplishment to your social media and tag us using #chsheroes5k.

Your time will not be counted toward results, but a finisher medal will be mailed directly to you along with your race t-shirt. Unless you notify us otherwise, we will mail to the address you provided at the time of registration. Please allow 4-6 weeks to receive your race packet. (To avoid putting runners and volunteers at risk, we will NOT be able to hold a packet pickup.)

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and understand this may be disappointing for many, but the health and well-being of our clients, team members, donors and others is far too important.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 561-402-0823. In the meantime, please stay connected with us on Facebook for any future developments.

Even in this time of uncertainty, we are happy to report that all CHS programs will continue to operate as usual, and your support is helping CHS end the need for foster care as we know it. Thank you for all you do for Palm Beach County’s children and families.

Race entry fee:

  • Now – April 16 : $35
  • Day of Event : $40
