My Hero Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not for profit dedicated to raising funds in support of the family life center located at Ann & Robert H. Lurie children’s hospital of Chicago. The Family Life Center (FLC) acts as a supportive safe haven for patients and their families during their stay at Lurie Children’s. From a laundry mat to a fun play area for the children to enjoy, the Family life center provides many services that provide relief to the families during their stay. Our goal for this race is to raise $15,000 for the FLC, so they can continue to provide toys, arts & crafts, and many other great services to the families in need.

Come show your true love and support of a great organization at the 2019 My Hero 5K Run/Walk to benefit Lurie Children’s. Get into the spirit of the race by dressing as your favorite superhero. Each participant will also receive an event t-shirt. This 5K will take place rain or shine and space is limited so get your tickets fast. See you there!
