Calling All Superheroes
We need you to help save the day! Suit up and join us for our Superhero 5K presented by Centennial Toyota. This is a fun-filled family event that brings the community together in support of local families battling childhood cancer hardships. All funds raised benefit the families served by Candlelighters! We are excited to gather in person this year at Exploration Peak Park on September 18, 2021.

Why We Run
A race for families and a race with families, the Superhero 5K is a day where we as a community join forces and super powers to help those in need! Families and friends from all over the state, country, and world come together and raise awareness and funding for Candlelighters' families. To honor and recognize the tremendous strength, courage, and bravery families demonstrate in the face of this terrible disease, we invite families to serve as Super Ambassadors.
