Event Information

Run for the Heroes 5K run/walk for the Wounded Warrior Project. All proceeds, after expenses, will go directly to the Wounded Warriors Project and help fund the amazing programs the WWP provides for America's heroes. This is a family friendly 5K walk/run at Rock Springs Park in O'Fallon, IL. The race is open to ages 10 and older. The course is mostly flat but does have one hill and one small incline. It is in a public park and is on paved paths for the entire course. Each paying participant will receive a race t-shirt. Who I am and why am I organizing this race? I am a C-130 pilot for the Illinois Air National Guard and have deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan 7 times in the past 10 years. One of the duties of my job is to fly injured servicemen and servicewomen off the battle field. It is one of the most important duties of my job. I have a passion for helping our wounded warriors and have decided to organize this event for that purpose.
