Each year, the Hero Games puts together an action-packed obstacle course race to raise awareness and funds for the Wheelchair Foundation.
Participants step into the shoes of everyday heroes – from firefighters to Marines – to get a feel for the physical demand it takes to be such a hero.
Whether you walk, run, or roll through the Hero Games, the fun and memories mean even more as all proceeds go toward changing lives across the globe by giving the gift of mobility through the Wheelchair Foundation.
How to Help
It is the Hero Games standing goal to raise and donate enough funds for an entire shipping container of wheelchairs for the Wheelchair Foundation’s distribution trips. A container holds 280 wheelchairs, and at $150 each, the Hero Games must raise $42,000.
We need you to make it happen:
