The Run for Wounded Heroes, Inc., formerly known as Run for Wounded Warriors, Inc., is the inspiration of Jonathan Borden of Kennesaw, Georgia. On Memorial Day 2009, as a then seventeen year-old senior Naval JROTC cadet at Kennesaw Mountain High School, Jonathan watched several biographies about severely wounded service men and women from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Jonathan was deeply moved by those bios and he was personally challenged to do something for those wounded heroes. In 2010 he and his family and friends held the inaugural Run for Wounded Warriors in which over 400 local runners participated. Last year, over 1500 runners participated.

The sixth annual Hero Run 5K venue is in historic downtown Kennesaw on Saturday, August 10, 2019. The event will include a 5k run/1 mile walk with the 5k race sanctioned as an official qualifier for the world famous Peachtree Road Race. This 5k race is also part of the Kennesaw Grand Prix series. With these credentials, we will attract both serious and recreational runners. The goal is to host 2000+ runners/walkers, raising funds that will be donated to wounded veteran organizations.
