Hope For Heroes 5k

Y107 is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Hope For Heroes 5k.

The Hope for Heroes 5K is returning for its 5th year with 2 area races, both on June 25th. One will be at Cosmo Park in Columbia, and the other at the Missouri Veterans Memorial in Jefferson City, with opening ceremonies at 7:30a, and the races beginning at 7:45a.

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. They distribute VIP Veteran Packs in 13 counties, up from 9 counties last year, with ongoing efforts to further expand the program.

Entry fee is $35 per person. You can sign up and find out more about the race here.
