6th annual Running for Our Heroes 5K Run/Walk

6th annual Running for Our Heroes 5K Run/Walk

University of Wisconsin-Superior

Superior, Wisconsin  September 9, 2019  (LSN) The University of Wisconsin-Superior will host the 6th annual Running for Our Heroes 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 9 a.m. The event is hosted by UW-Superior’s Veteran and Nontraditional Student Center (VNSC) and Douglas County Veteran Services.

“It’s been great to see this event grow,” said Monte Stewart, the VNSC Student Services Coordinator. “We’ve made improvements that really enhance the experience for participants. The Superior Police Department auxiliary blocks off roads and the Superior Fire Department is there to support the race and they also hang a large American flag from the ladder of one of their fire trucks next to the finish line. The local Wisconsin Army National Guard unit and American Legion Post #435 will also be in attendance to present colors and represent our veterans. I think it’s great that we are able to highlight the everyday heroes in our lives and include them in the event’s festivities.” 

Registration, as well as the start and finish line, will be located at UW-Superior’s Marcovich Wellness Center at 1810 Catlin Ave. Registration is $30 per person from Sept. 9 to 24 and $35 after. The registration fee for UW-Superior students, military veterans and pre-kindergarten to 12th grade students is $20 per person. Registration includes a T-shirt and gift bag while supplies last. Registration is available online at uwsuper.edu/heroes5k and from 7 to 8:30 a.m. the day of the race. 

Prizes and awards will be presented to the top three male and female overall finishers and the top three males and females in several different age categories. There will be a raffle drawing with prizes from local and regional businesses and sports teams. Individuals that bring non-perishable food items for donation will receive an extra entry into the prize drawing.

“The course takes you through the campus and heart of UW-Superior,” said Stewart. “We have music playing prior to the race and during the race. I love the fact that we conduct a formal national anthem before the race, too. We also take a moment of silence to recognize the heroes in our lives who may not be here today. It’s a powerful event.”

All proceeds from the run/walk will benefit the Douglas County Soldiers and Sailors Relief Fund as well as the UW-Superior VNSC Emergency Fund. Since it started, the Running for Our Heroes 5K Run/Walk has raised more than $10,000.

The VNSC opened in 2012 to provide programming in support of student success for veteran or nontraditional students. The VNSC serves 35 percent of the undergraduate enrollment each semester including veterans, students with children, current military service members, dependents or spouses of veterans, married students and students 25 years or older. More than five percent of UW-Superior’s undergraduates are veteran/military students.
