Flint Superhero Run


Since all of the superheroes have joined forces to stop the spread of the villain COVID-19, the Superhero Fun Run (originally scheduled for April 25, 2020) is now RESCHEDULED & VIRTUAL.

A virtual race format really is the safest option for our community and our participants this year. Though we are sad that we won't be able to celebrate and connect in our usual face-to-face race format, we are grateful to have the ability to host this event in whatever capacity keeps everyone safe, and still helps support Genesee County's most vulnerable children. The kids in our community need us, especially right now, and we can still each be a Superhero in their lives. Thank you for all of your understanding and support. It is needed more than ever!

Your registration for the Superhero 5k or 1k Fun Run goes directly to help child survivors of human trafficking, abuse, and neglect by providing them with hope, help, and healing. Voices for Children is the child advocacy center serving Flint, Genesee, and Shiawassee Counties. All funds raised will directly benefit Genesee County children who are survivors of human trafficking, abuse, or neglect.

Register Online Today

If you already completed your registration you don't have to do anything further besides saving the updated date(s). A virtual race means you can be a hero on your time and at your own pace.

So what is a virtual race?

It is a flexible 5K or 1K that you can do wherever you are and however you want. You can bike, swim, run, walk, or fly. There's no specific location, route, or time. Just do your superhero best between September 7 and September 27 and post about your run on social media.

Registration

Registration is open until 9/18/20.

  • Virtual 5K Run & 5K Walk races are still available
    • $30
  • Our Virtual 1K Fun Run is also an option
    • $25

What do I get for my registration fee?

You get to play a critical role in helping local child survivors of human trafficking, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and neglect. That's the most important thing. In addition, if you register now, before August 25, 2020, you are guaranteed a t-shirt. Unfortunately, if you register after August 25th we cannot guarantee a t-shirt.

Packet Pick Up

Pick up your race packet, including your shirt if you purchased one in early registration, or if you registered after August 1st but before August 25th. Also included will be your race-number/ run bib to wear on your virtual run and a participation medal. Be sure to share photos and videos to spread the word!
