A Race with a Purpose

The Austin Police Department and Special Olympics Texas invite you to the Run with the Heroes 5K. Runners of all levels – beginners through advanced – are invited to participate and compete. This event features both competition and fun for all skill levels; it's a day of community and enjoyment with friends and family!
