5th Annual Superhero 5k And Fun Run

5th Annual Superhero 5k And Fun Run


This Spring 2017, prepare to lace up your sneakers for the BEST Kids annual Superhero 5K race and Fun Run. Join us at 7am on April 22nd at Anacostia Park to raise support and awareness for youth in the DC foster care system. This year, our 5th Annual Superhero 5K & Fun Run is proudly presented by our Champion Sponsor, Atlantic Building Supply.

Adults and children alike are invited to throw on their best costumes and capes to make their way across the finish line to be heroes for DC’s youth. Registration is now open for individual runners/walkers, as well as teams. Friends, families, coworkers, running groups, and community members are encouraged to participate as heroes together to enjoy the race, music, activities and refreshments.

BEST Kid’s is a nonprofit mentoring organization that empowers youth in foster care to build better futures, one child at a time.  The Annual Superhero 5K & Fun Run is one of our signature fundraising events that raised funds to directly support our one-on-one mentoring program. More than 300 participants are expected to make their way through 3.1 miles in support of this BEST Kids’ mission.
