Have you ever wanted to be a super hero?
Fayette County Victim Witness is hosting a Super Hero 5K run/walk to raise awareness for Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
Local heroes in law enforcement, fire fighting, and EMS will be participants in the Super Hero 5K.
“Dressing up like your favorite super hero is encouraged but not required. If you can’t run, that’s OK, we have plenty of walkers too. All proceeds of the event will be donated to the law enforcement’s Kids and Cops Christmas Shop,” said Stefani Payton, Fayette County Victim Witness victim advocate.
Payton said details about the Kids and Cops Christmas Shop will be available at a later date.
The run/walk will be held Saturday, Oct. 7 in Washington C.H. The start and finish line will be in the county parking lot on South Main Street. The race begins at 9 a.m.
People who want to participate in this year’s 5K run/walk and want to register for a t-shirt are asked to do so by Sept. 20. Payton said that so far only a few people have registered for the event and without more participants the event could be cancelled.
