Superhero 5K

The For Kids' Sake Superhero 5K in Carbondale, IL is our largest annual fundraiser. Superheroes save lives, which is exactly what you do when you participate in this race. All proceeds benefit orphans and students in Bangladesh. Some participants become true Superheroes, by fundraising for the kids.

Become a 2021 Sponsor

For 2021, we are excited to offer a hybrid Superhero 5K. Supporters in Southern Illinois can run/walk together in person, while supporters worldwide can join virtually. The event will be held on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at Turley Park in Carbondale, Illinois as well as virtually around the globe. Having a hybrid event gives our sponsors the best of both worlds - heavy local promotions with national outreach. See the sponsorship packet for details.
