How We Got Our Start…
The Honored Hero Run is a family-friendly event honor those who have battled or are currently battling blood cancer. This event is a collective endeavor, by a group of local leaders and friends, to bring the community together in an effort to raise awareness of and funds for blood cancer research. Proceeds are donated to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
Our Mission: To bring the community together in a collective effort to raise awareness of and funds for blood cancer research, while honoring those who have battled or are currently battling blood cancer.
Each year the HHR Board of Directors visits local hospitals; Cook Childrens and Medical City Dallas, offering the opportunity to young cancer patients to enter a logo contest. These young artists are the face of more than 327, 000 people in the U.S. who suffer from blood cancer everyday. Their artwork shines a bright light for all the heroes we honor at the Race. Logo Winners are awarded a certificate and are invited to attend the race as VIPs.Honored Hero artwork shines a bright light for all who are battling blood cancer. Click To Tweet
Approximately every 3 minutes one person in the United States (US) is diagnosed with a blood cancer. The Honored Hero Run is a one-of-a-kind event that offers a community atmosphere for individuals and families to come together and make their community healthier by raising awareness of and funds for blood cancer research…and have some fun while they do!
Since 2009, the Honored Hero Run has donated over $140,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Without the support of fundraising events, like the Honored Hero Run, LLS™ funding for many cutting-edge projects could not be done.
Meet Our Racers!
Special thanks to Glasswave Media for creating this high-quality, heart-felt tribute to our racers and their stories.
Honored Heroes are a special group of people who have been directly touched by blood cancer. However, if you ask one of our Honored Heroes, they may be humbled and share with you that they have heroes in their own lives; people who have supported them during their battle. Past Honored Heroes have defined their heroes as parents, friends, family members, nurses and doctors. The HHR strives to recognize and honor these heroes as well.
Voted Best Kids Race!
