This year the Arc of Erie County is joining forces with The Epilepsy Project in this one of a kind race!  Formerly known as “The Step Up Erie” Race, The Be A Hero Run asks everyone to “Be A Hero” for individuals and families touched by a disability or by epilepsy.
We are excited to welcome our MC, “Master Champion With a Heart” for the race, PA State Representative Ryan Bizzaro! 
He will be helping us to kick off the race in style!
Join us for the race and then stay with us for a fabulous gift basket raffle, Face Painting By Connie, Magic Steve will be twisting balloons, and there will be music and dancing from Millennium Sound! 

The 5K is a timed race and awards will be given out for:
·         Top three mens
·         Top three womens
·         Top three youth
·         Awards for first place overall, middle of the pack, and a top Master’s finisher.
T-Shirts by Iron Empire are included for the paid events, and are available at a low price for those receiving free entries. You need to register by May 26th to guarantee receiving a t-shirt.
T-shirts will be available day of race on a first come first serve basis.  Sizes are subject to availability.
There will be superhero capes for every child to wear that registers.  Every participant will receive an Iron Empire draw string bag with registration – Perfect to hold your t-shirt or the basket raffle item you may win!
We hope to see everyone step out to be a hero on June 13th!
