Hope for Heroes 5K
The Hope for Heroes 5K is returning as an in-person event in 2021, along with a virtual option for those who wish to participate separately. The run/walk will be held at 7:30 a.m. on June 26 at Cosmopolitan Park in Columbia. The virtual race will be held from June 26-July 10. Safety guidelines will be in place and updated here before the event.
Hosted by The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri, Hope for Heroes benefits the VIP Veteran Pack Program. The program provides additional nutrition to food-insecure veterans. VIP Veteran Packs include ready-to-eat entrees, soup, and fruit and vegetables in easy-to-open cans, as well as toiletries such as razors, body wash and deodorant. We distribute VIP Veteran Packs in seven counties — Adair, Audrain, Benton, Boone, Cole, Callaway and Miller — with ongoing efforts to further expand the program.
Cost: $30 per participant
