ABOUT US

RUN FOR WOUNDED HEROES

The Hero Run, 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.

The 7th annual Hero Run 5K venue is in historic downtown Kennesaw on Saturday, June 6, 2020. 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 local wounded veteran organizations.

We ask that you support this life changing event by becoming a financial sponsor. We will display any banners you give us at the race start/finish line and your business logo will be included on the race T-shirt.
