The Heritage Hero is a one mile walk, 5K race and kids dash that supports people with developmental disabilities, children and seniors through the work of Heritage Christian Services. We are excited to announce that this year's event will be hosted at Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, NY. Come out and race and/or walk and then enjoy a day of ride and slides!
Heroes are those who make us proud and help us become better people. Their warm spirit and positive outlook on life inspires everyone around them. Honor a family member enlisted in the armed forces, or a survivor of a serious illness. Maybe you’ll participate for a loved one whose spirit burns brightly despite their passing.
Proceeds from the event benefit Heritage Christian Services. HCS partners with thousands of people throughout Rochester and Buffalo to ensure everyone – including children, older adults and people with developmental disabilities – feels valued and respected. Most of the agency’s 2,400 employees work one-on-one supporting people who have disabilities so they can find the best place to live and work and build strong community connections. Other employees work with children at Expressive Beginnings Child Care or with older adults who need in-home health care. Thanks to their dedication, HCS is recognized as one of New York’s top 10 service providers for people with disabilities and has earned national accreditation.
