Heroes for Education Run Walk 2021
ABOUT THE EVENT
Join more than 1,000 enthusiastic runners, walkers, volunteers and supporters of education who come together annually to help promote health and wellness while making an impact in Palm Beach County’s public schools.
When 176,000+ students returned to 'brick & mortar' learning this fall, they needed more tools and resources to start the new school year off strong. They will need our continued support to ensure their future is bright. By participating in the 2021 Heroes for Education Run Walk, you will make a difference for thousands of students in your own community and throughout Palm Beach County. The district's highest-needs students will have a more equitable place to learn because of your support. Every step counts, every dollar counts, because every student counts!
Sunday, October 31, 2021 at John Prince Park, Lake Worth Beach.
