Heroes Red & Blue: The Will Caviness Memorial and Superhero Fun Run


  • Little Brother Brewing 348 South Elm Street Greensboro, NC, 27401 United States (map)

The Heroes Red and Blue 5k is a running celebration to honor all fire fighters, police and public safety heroes. Proceeds from the event will go to the International Association of Fire Fighters to support the International Burn Camp, a life-changing opportunity for burn survivors ages 13-15 and the fire fighters/camp counselors who work to make a difference in the lives of these young people. The all-expenses paid, week-long camp helps burn survivors understand that they are not alone and that there is a larger support system for them. 

Heroes Red and Blue particularly honors the memory of Will Caviness, a Greensboro fire fighter who passed away in 2011 while running the Chicago Marathon and raising funds for the International Burn Camp. Registration is $30 now through August 31st, then will increase to $35. There will also be a FREE Superhero Kids Fun Run where kids are welcome to dress up in capes and superhero costumes to run our Fun Run course which will be a 1/2 mile in length. After the run, we will be hosting a block party with live music, food trucks and delicious beers! Join us Sept. 29th! Race kicks off at 6PM, kids fun run is at 6:05PM. Sponsorships & vendor spots are still available - contact us today!
