Join us for the Superhero 5K &Fun Run in Bay St. Louis, MS where we will be celebrating Caregivers from all walks of life to include Nonprofessional Family Caregivers along with Professional Caregivers and Heroes to include Policemen, Nurses, Doctors, Firemen, Military, EMT. We will be doing a special tribute to Lt. Michael Boutte who was killed in action, and also Cayce Seal who was killed on duty. We would love for everyone to walk in support of their favorite caregiver or walk in costume of your favorite Superhero (or even Villian). All proceeds will go to support Mississippi Heroes in their Mission of Celebrating Caregivers by giving them a day off of fun and relaxation, or a care basket full of items that will offer them what they need to know they are supported, loved & hopefully something to relax.
After the race join us for a day-long celebration to include a car show hosted by The Misfits, a People's Choice for Favorite Home Brewer, a kids area, a Jambalaya/Pastalaya Cookoff sponsored by Dodge Champion Gulfport & music to include live music throughout the day with a headliner at night. We will be looking for water table sponsors & sponsors for the overall event. Please join us in the fun & this yearly celebration to honor November's National Caregiver Month.
