Walk-up registration the day of the event is $35 for the 5k and $40 for the 10k. In addition to the entry fee, we are encouraging runners to fund raise to support the programs and services provided by the Chapter.  Further details about fundraising are provided on our website.  We will be offering a Kids’ Race, too.  Registration will be $10 per child (age 11 and under).  Two of our programs in need of your superhero fundraising efforts are our Durable Medical Equipment Loan Pool and the Hrbek-Sing Communication and Assistive Device Program.  We currently have individuals on waiting lists for equipment from both programs, so the money raised from this event will assist us in fulfilling these outstanding equipment needs. Awards will be given to the 1st place winners in each age category for both men and women in each race.  Event Contact: Chelsea Cronin, Event Email: Chelsea@alsmn.orgEvent Phone: 605-274-0230, Event Website: www.alssuperherodash.com.
