May is National Foster Care Month and we invite you to join us Friday, May 17th, from 4pm-8pm, to celebrate our 3rd Annual “Be a Hero” Fun Run.  This event will be held at the Oak Pavilion in Carson Park and is organized by Anu Family Services, Inc. in an effort to shine light on the need for foster care throughout the State and to recognize families we see as heroes in becoming foster parents.  At the event, there will be a Family Fun Zone from 4pm-6pm where families can enjoy music, face painting, crafts, a bouncy house, and more.  Local law enforcement and firefighters will also be attending our event, people we consider to be everyday heroes.  Then, starting at 6pm, the untimed, family-friendly 5k run/walk will begin.  Participants are encouraged to dress like their favorite hero, whether it be a superhero or every day hero. 

Registration:  Adults - $15, Youth - $10, Team of 6 People - $75, Foster Families - FREE
