Heroes for Children 5K Results

Heroes for Children 5K was held Saturday, September 12, 2009 at Shops at Legacy. The rain stayed away for the most part, and we had over 1,000 participants! We netted over $40,000 for families with children battling cancer.

Thank you to everyone who came out to participate! Thank you to Tawn Merrill and Amanda Blankenship, our co-chairs, and to our incredible committee for their hard work in putting together a super fun event! Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, especially our presenting sponsor - WFAA, Gold Sponsors - TXU Energy and Boardwalk Autogroup, and Silver Sponsors - Baylor Medical Center at Frisco and Buford Builders! Thank you to everyone who volunteered! We couldn't have done it without all of you!
