The Hero Half was organized by a team of ROTC cadets who wanted to form an event that would spotlight the heroic deeds of the veterans and first-responders in our community. The idea was born out of the realization of a growing divide between our community and those on the front-lines of freedom. We wanted to narrow the gap and give back to those who sacrifice so much for us.
The mission of this race is to provide an annual event that will bring the community together and donating 100% of proceeds to benefit families of fallen police officers through the Utah 1033 Foundation, local fire stations, local veterans, and future leaders in the Army ROTC. Come run the Hero Half or the Hero 5k in Provo, Utah! Help us make a difference in the lives of our heroes by registering to race today!
