Hero 5K Run/Walk
You don't need superpowers to be a hero. Just a superhero's costume, a little drive, and a lot of heart. At the Hero 5K, which benefits The Shade Tree's mission to stop domestic violence, participants take to the Llama lot at 9th and Freemont, decked out in the disguises of their favorite comic book characters, for 3.10686 miles of colorful walking, running, or lollygagging (only if you're dressed as Batman's foe, The Lolligagger). The event features a special performance by the hip-hop dance troupe, Jabbawockeez (winners of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew), and is hosted by Pro BMX Rider Ricardo Laguna and former Miss Nevada Lisa Song Sutton.
