One of the Flint areas favorite family fun events is back! We have an interesting course, a great venue, and the event will be bigger and better than ever! Every finisher will receive a custom finishers medal. The 5K Run and 5K Walk are timed events with age-group awards. The family friendly 1K Family Fun Run will remain a non-competitive event. The Flint Superhero Run promises to provide fun for the entire family.

All proceeds will benefit the Voices for Children Advocacy Center, which is dedicated to serving the child victims and families of child abuse in Genesee County and enhancing the lives of all children through treatment, education and by increasing community awareness

We encourage you to dress as your favorite superhero. Dress up or not, we look forward to seeing you there.

5th Annual Superhero Virtual 5K Fun Run & Walk

Did you know that April is nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month? Join Midland county’s Safe and Sound Child Advocacy Center at our 5th Annual Superhero 5K Virtual Fun Run & Walk! Become a Safe and Sound Superhero and #BeTheOne. We believe through the power of one person, one community, one dollar, one action, Midland residents can help to protect children from abuse and neglect and strengthen families right here in Midland county. Runner’s will receive #BeTheOne t-shirts and bracelets for participating. Runner goodies will be available/delivered most likely AFTER April due to CO-VID 19. Preventing child abuse before it occurs is the responsible way to manage our society’s future #CAPmonth

Because every child deserves a hero, and to feel SAFE and SOUND.

Gamers for Giving 2020 ONLINE

Gamers for Giving is a competitive gaming tournament and LAN party that helps generate resources for the initiatives of Gamers Outreach. Funds raised from the event help support Gamers Outreach charity initiatives, such as building portable gaming carts for children in hospitals.

COVID-19 Update from their website:
Over the past few weeks, our team has been actively monitoring developments regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). Attendee safety, as well as the safety of our volunteers, sponsors, and streamers is our top priority.

In consideration of growing public health concerns, we’ve decided to move this year’s Gamers for Giving to an online-only format. We will not be hosting a LAN or on-site tournaments at the EMU Convocation Center this year.

As you can imagine, this was not an easy decision to make. Our team works hard throughout the year to create an incredible experience for the gaming community. We sought guidance from our board, advisors, as well as health authorities in Michigan. We believe this course of action is in the best interest of our attendees and the event as a whole.

Refunds will be issued to all original ticket purchasers over the next 7 – 10 days. If you do not receive a refund by March 18th, please contact our team via email at [email protected] If you bought a ticket from a third party, please contact them directly with refund requests.

While Gamers for Giving won’t have a LAN component or tournaments, we still intend to produce an online fundraising marathon throughout the weekend of March 28th & 29th. We’ll be streaming live on our Twitch channel both days, and a number of our industry friends will be broadcasting from home!

Gamers for Giving is a major driver for our programs in hospitals. Kids and their families have come to depend on our ongoing support for the devices we provide. We’re going to make every effort to ensure we have a strong outcome, but we’ll need everyone’s help and encouragement to get there.

We invite you to join us online March 28th & 29th. Anyone can create a Tiltify fundraising campaign in support of our $700,000 goal to provide hospitalized children with access to entertainment. With your help, we can still make a massive difference for young gamers receiving medical care.

While we’re disappointed we won’t be able to unite our community in-person, as gamers, we’re the best in the world at uniting together through the internet. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this anomalous situation.

We look forward to hosting a LAN next year, and hope to see you this March 28th & 29th online.
