WHO: Impact A Hero and KPRC’s Sports Director Randy McIlvoy will host…

WHAT: Seventh Annual Impact A Hero 5K Walk, Run and Wheel
This year, Impact A Hero anticipates more than 2,000 runners, including 50 wounded heroes.

Special Guests: Houston Texans Head football Coach Gary Kubiak and several of his coaches and players will participate with our wounded heroes.

Kids’ 1K Race
This race will take place during the 5K Walk, Run and Wheel. Children will have fun running with Texan’s Toro!

Donation for the 2010 Impact A Hero weekend exceeded $720,000

WHEN: 7:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., June 4, 2011

WHERE: Mercer Stadium
16403 Lexington
Sugar Land, Texas 77479

WHY: Impact A Hero Weekend gives Houstonians an opportunity to join national celebrities in thanking our severely wounded servicemen
and women for sacrificing their minds, bodies and sometimes their lives.

Through multiple events around the country, IPP raises funds that are used for unencumbered grants to those who have made tremendous sacrifices for us and our country. These grants help in covering lost wages of parents and spouses who are required to stop working to provide care for our heroes.

Impact A Hero is a non-partisan 501(c) (3) organization consisting of individuals and corporations dedicated to providing emotional and financial support for our severely wounded or disabled veterans returning home from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, and their families.
