Capes & Heroes

In keeping with the “Big Steps for Small Heroes” theme, participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero or don a cape. Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each category, top individual fundraisers, top fundraising teams, best costume, and best team costume.

Added Murphy, “We encourage everyone to dress up to channel our inner superhero to honor and support our pediatric cancer community, while raising funds and awareness to help fight their nemesis – cancer.”
