Here's a fun event for families and kids who love being superheroes.
The third annual Alpha and Omega "Superhero" 5K is set for July 13 at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary.
The race has a superhero theme and participants are encouraged to come in costume. It's designed for everybody from walkers to serious runners (the race is certified and timed by FS Series). Registered kids can participate in a Superhero Training Academy and fun run and will be awarded in capes and masks. They also have prizes for best costume.
The event begins at 8 a.m., July 13. The Superhero Training Academy and fun run begins at 8:15 a.m. Late packet pickup and day of registration starts at 7 a.m. The cost is $25 for a timed racer participation (including race T-shirt). It's $12 for kids to participate in the academy training and fun run (including the cape and mask).
All proceeds will benefit Hope for Belize, a non-profit group started in 2007 to "equip the people of Belize for the purpose of God," according to its mission. Proceeds will help pay for local teams traveling to Belize for week-long mission trips this year and next year.
