Calling all heroes!

Come out and conquer the Save the Day 5K on May 30th!

The National Inclusion Project is hosting a 5k run, one mile fun run, and live music making this event the ideal block party. The superhero theme sets the stage as we work together to support inclusion within our community and beyond! We encourage everyone to get into character by dressing up as their favorite superhero.

Who are your heroes?
Heroes come in many forms. For some, it's their local firemen and police officers. For others, it's Captain America. Our heroes at the National Inclusion Project are children, parents, and advocates in the field of disabilities. Whomever your hero is, let that show! Costumes are optional, but highly encouraged. Top costume winners will receive a prize following the close of both races.
