Organiser's Description

**Save the Date for May 4, 2024**At the Hope Network Foundation, what might look like the ordinary actions of everyday people, are actually heroes to the clients who rely on the Hope Networks mental health services. On May 7th, we are asking the community to join the Hope Network Foundation and Celebration Cinema to flood the streets of downtown Grand Rapids for the Heroes of Hope 5K Community Walk, which will raise support awareness for mental health programming, turning the community into HEROES! 
All 5K participants will receive a shirt medal.
To help flood the streets with mental health heroes, the Community Walk will be free and approximately a mile in distance.
Our youngest superheroes participating in the Youth Events will also receive a free entry, along with a cape. The Youth Events will feature .25, .5, and a Mile distance and will take place with the Community Walk.
We also have volunteer opportunities on race day!
