Superhero Run Toledo 5K
and 1-Mile Family Fun Run!
Swan Creek Preserve Metropark., 4659 Airport Hwy., Toledo, OH 43615
Calling all superheroes!
No matter your fitness level, this run is for you!
We hope you will join us on Sunday, October 11, 2015 at Swan Creek Preserve Metropark for the Superhero Run Toledo 5K and 1-Mile Family Fun Run presented by Run for Reece!
The mostly flat course starts and finishes at Swan Creek Preserve Metropark on Airport Hwy. in Toledo, Ohio. The event will start at 10:00 a.m. followed immediately by the 1-mile fun walk.
100% of the proceeds from the event will go toward Reece Bova's medical expenses. Reece is undoubtedly a superhero. Born with severe heart and lung defects, Reece has undergone two heart surgeries and just had his tenth heart catheterization. Did we mention he is only 3 years old?!
Due to the severity of his illnesses, Reece and his family were turned away from many world-renowned hospitals. Even the best of the best were not willing to surgically treat Reece due to the riskiness of his surgeries. However, Boston Children's Hospital, ranked #1 in pediatric cardiology, stepped up to the plate and has been treating Reece surgically for two years. All of this comes at a huge cost for Reece's mommy and daddy. In addition to travel expenses, lodging and food while having to travel to Boston twice a year, Reece's medical bills continue to grow.
