We are a little late at posting this year, but here is the story of this year’s superhero:
Below is the list of awards for the 2015 River Valley Superhero 5K. I realize we had several issues with timing on race day, but I hope that the kinks have been worked out. However, if you feel that the information provided is not accurate, please let us know and we will do what we can to correct it. If you are listed to receive an award and did not receive one but would like one, please contact us via email or Facebook so that we can arrange a date and time to meet. If you received an award at the race but are now not listed to receive an award, we apologize for the confusion… you may keep the award presented.
This year’s superhero is Liam “He-Man” Holland and is hands down the bravest baby we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Diagnosed with neuroblastoma only hours after birth, Liam is an amazing little guy that is less than a year old! Liam is the son of Devin and Elizabeth Holland of Russellville. His sister, Madi, is four years old. His cancer affects his kidney and the surrounding area. Liam has undergone several rounds of chemo at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and was referred to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for a surgery consult. On January 29, 2015 Liam was officially deemed cancer free after an operation was conducted to remove the tumor. Although the battle isn’t completely over, the outlook for Liam is spectacular!

Our beneficiaries of the 2nd Annual Superhero 5K are 13 year old Korey Heath from Dover, 3 year old Morgan Schwehm from Russellville, and 3 year old Breya Bunting from Dardanelle. In the spirit of three female beneficiaries, our slogan this year is “Fight Like A Girl”! Stay tuned for the stories and pictures of our girls and more race info!
