2017 Heart of Gold 5K Run for the Children
Saturday, September 16, 2017
Galatyn Plaza, Richardson Texas
7:30 a.m. Opening Ceremonies
Heroes for Children and Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer decided to partner together in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month for one reason: to help children battling cancer. To help their families, and to help make the burden more bearable.
The assistance Heroes for Children provides directly to families helps relieve some of the strain and stress during this difficult time in their lives. Whether it is to pay a medical bill, buy gas for the frequent trips to the hospital, or keep a family from having their electricity turned off, Heroes for Children is committed to helping families.
Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer is dedicated to raising awareness and funding for pediatric cancer research on a national level. Children are fighting valiantly every day to survive cancer and their only hope of a cure is through more research. WOKC provides critical funding to key research initiatives on a national basis.
With your sponsorship support, Heroes for Children & Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer can ensure that no family with a child battling cancer will fight alone and will help with finding a cure for this terrible disease.

The Heart of Gold 5K Run for the Children brings the community together for a family-friendly event celebrating the hearts of children fighting cancer. In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the gold heart represents the heart of each of our supporters who participate and raise money, and those who surround our families with love and support.
Entertainment will feature a live DJ and kids “Adventure Zone” with games, activities, bounce houses and a special area to honor and remember children who have been affected by cancer. The event also includes prizes, awards, giveaways and food.
