The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club will host its 6th annual Superhero 5K as a completely virtual event this year. Participants will be able to run any 3.1-mile course of their choosing and submit their results to an online portal. Runners will be able to run and submit their times between August 8, 2020, at 12 a.m. and Saturday, August 15, 2020 at 12 p.m.
Every year, the Superhero 5K raises critical funds for the Boys & Girls of Greenville. These funds help the Boys & Girls Club operate its summer day camp and after school program, which together serve more than 400 local youth every year.
“Though the Superhero 5K may look different this year, the Boys & Girls Club is confident the 5K will still be an awesome experience for our new and returning runners,” says Mike Burdine, executive director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Greenville. “The virtual Superhero 5K allows us to ensure the safety of our runners, volunteers and staff, while still raising the necessary funds for our year-round programs.”
