To ensure the safety of participants, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, staff and spectators, we're taking the Superhero Challenge to a virtual format. We may not be with you physically, but we'll be cheering you on in spirit and we're confident you can still capture the excitement of the day from the safety of your own backyard.  

Stop the hurt. Start the healing.

Help us stop the hurt and start the healing by participating in the first ever virtual Superhero Challenge
