On Saturday, October 26, at 8 a.m., the Walk4Heroes 5K kicks off a weekend-long fall festival that raises funds for Hope4Heroes, an organization that supports military personnel suffering from PTSD and depression. Participants circle the festival area beginning at 9 a.m. during a leisurely walk or run, gathering back at the main fest tent that night at 7 p.m. for music and a $250 prize drawing. Participants can spend the rest of the day boogieing to live German music, perusing arts and crafts stations, and purchasing fall goodies from food trucks.

Cheer on the Hope4Heroes team, which is made up entirely of military personnel and first responders, as they take the field against a team made up of celebrities and former athletic greats.

Hope4Heroes

Injuries from combat are often more visible than the emotional trauma of war, yet those traumas can be just as deadly. Fortunately, though days may be dark, the compassionate professionals at Hope4Heroes spend their days lighting the beacons that line the path toward mental health. The non-profit organization actively supports military personnel suffering from depression, PTSD, and suicidal thoughts through counseling programs and community outreach. Their most celebrated work comes though their rehabilitative sports programs. The idea behind these programs is simple: the teamwork, camaraderie, and physical activity of sports helps to directly tackle the major symptoms and triggers of depression. In addition to building pride in their on-field performance, players also have the opportunity to play alongside retired MLB and NFL greats during events such baseball tournaments and golf tours. These matches aren't just fun, though; through them, Hope4Heroes also joins forces with local charities to raise funds for wounded vets and their families.

For those who take care of their overall well-being with exercise, yoga, and balanced nutrition
