2017 Heroes Run

The Heroes Run is an annual event that includes a 5K run/walk, obstacle course, and kids fun run. The Heroes Run is produced by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Clara County Fire Department, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and the VMC Foundation. The event started in 2013, to not only provide a fun and healthy activity for our community, but also to raise much needed funds that directly benefit children’s health services at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, the largest provider of healthcare to low-income communities in Silicon Valley. The Heroes Run has been a great resource for the Valley Medical Center Hospital & Clinics. So far we have been able to provide new TV’s and wiring for our pediatric department, play cubes to our clinic waiting rooms, toys for children in the hospital during the holidays, formula measuring spoons for families who cannot afford them, and this year we hope to be able to purchase TV’s and DVD players for our PICU unit. The run will be held at the Cupertino Civic Center on November 4, 2017.
