Heros Journey Charity 5K

Heros_Journey_PNG.png

The Hero's Journey relates to any person who faces a challenge, encounters struggles to overcome it, and returns home a Hero. We hope this 5K is a transformative experience as you run/walk together; whether you are a veteran runner or this is your first 5K. We chose to start the run across from the theater and end in the 7/20 Memorial in the Reflection Garden as your return home/finish line to honor the journey from tragedy to hope. It is the perfect place for each of us to honor and celebrate our collective accomplishment as well as our heroes from the 7-20-12 event. All proceeds will go towards the Zack Golditch opportunity scholarship. Zack is an Aurora, CO native who, though in the adjacent theater, was in wounded in the 2012 Aurora Theater Shooting. Zack spent parts of two seasons in the NFL before coming back to the Front Range. He now follows the path of those who came to his aid 10 years ago, with his career as a firefighter at South Metro Fire.
