Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life Superhero Sprint returns this year

Not all superheroes wear capes; some wear running shoes. And the ones in running shoes help to raise money for sick children and their families.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will host its 10th annual Strong4Life Superhero Sprint 5K and 1-mile fun run on June 4 at Piedmont Park, and you still have time to register and participate.

All proceeds will benefit the hospital’s Strong4Life program, which helps Georgia families raise healthy, safe and resilient kids.

Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero, but it’s not a requirement to run. If you do wear a costume, though, there will be a contest after the race as part of the family-friendly activities planned. Prizes will be awarded to the adults, children, groups and dogs with the best superhero costumes.
