The Rotary Club of Arlington and Stripe-A-Zone are sponsoring the third annual Arlington Heroes Run 5K Race and Fun Run on Saturday, November 11, 2017, to honor our local heroes, including fire, police, and veterans. 
 
Last year, the Arlington Heroes Run raised almost $15,000 for Arlington charities.  This year, we hope to raise even more money.
 
We are looking for sponsors.  The Run is NOT a fundraiser for Rotary.  Instead, the Run directly benefits three Arlington foundations, including the Arlington Fire Department Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, the Arlington Police Foundation, and the Veteran's Park Foundation.  Our costs are covered, so new donations directly benefit the charities.
 
Arlington Fire Department Random Acts of Kindness Foundation - As firefighters respond to calls for help, they may find people in need of a helping hand to improve their quality of life.  Random Acts of Kindness provides support to those in need.  In the past, firefighters have been able to provide items such as air conditioning units, medical equipment, and vehicle repairs to needy families and individuals. 
 
Arlington Police Foundation - The foundation provides support for community initiatives, special events, and programs that enable officers to create and sustain partnerships within the City, promote crime prevention, and recognize outstanding service.  Programs such as PAL Camp, the K9 Unit, and the Annual Awards are just some areas that are supported by donations to the foundation.
 
Veterans Park Foundation - Veterans Park stands in remembrance of those citizens of Arlington who served our country through their military service.  It is the only park in the city with a disc golf course and one of two with an equestrian trail.   The Veteran's Park Foundation funds improvements to the Veteran's Park, including colonnades, flagpoles, statuary, and walkways.
