Hope For Heroes 5K

93.9 The Eagle is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Hope For Heroes 5k.

The Hope for Heroes 5K is returning as an in-person event this year, along with a virtual option for those who wish to participate separately. The run/walk will be held at 7:30 a.m. on June 26 at Cosmo Park in Columbia.

Hosted by The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri, Hope for Heroes benefits the VIP Veteran Pack Program. The program provides additional nutrition to food-insecure veterans. VIP Veteran Packs include ready-to-eat entrees, soup, and fruit and vegetables in easy-to-open cans, as well as toiletries such as razors, body wash and deodorant. We distribute VIP Veteran Packs in seven counties — Adair, Audrain, Benton, Boone, Cole, Callaway and Miller — with ongoing efforts to further expand the program.

Entry fee is $30 per person. You can sign up and find out more about the race here.
