2015 Heroes 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run

heroesOn Saturday, November 7, the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and the Valley Medical Center Foundation will be out again for a family-friendly 2015 Heroes 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run at the Cupertino Civic Center.

Prizes are given for the best kid’s costumes and best family costumes (Dress as your favorite hero/super hero, optional).

Deputy Jeremy Jones: “I have been with the County Sheriff’s Office for over five years. A few years ago, I responded to a call that involved a mother and small child. The mother was suffering from a mental illness while caring for her nine-month-old son. Due to her illness, her son was lacking proper care and was admitted to Valley Medical Center. I was the Deputy to chaperone the child while in the hospital. As hours passed, I held this little boy and became emotionally attached. I spoke with the staff at Valley Medical and learned that they are one of the largest pediatric centers in California and was in dire need of improving their kid-friendly atmosphere. I visited the center and met children who had sustained injuries that no child should ever have to endure. No matter their circumstances, each child smiled as I walked around to each of them asking who their hero was. One child responded that cops and firefighters were because they kept him safe…and they drive cool cars. I realized at that moment that the children were the true heroes. This experience has left a lasting impression on my life and a passion to help children. Shared experiences like these are the reason the Heroes Run was created.”
