Are you ready for the race and game of a life time? This event is for you! On Saturday, September 16 from 4-8 pm at the Electric Park at Thanksgiving Point (2300 N. Ashton Blvd., Lehi), the whole family can enjoy an evening of fun games, a 5K or a free 1K for kids, and more!
Ultradent Products, Inc., has wholeheartedly supported the Utah Food Bank for almost two decades! In the last nine years alone, the company and its employees have donated more than 1.5 million pounds of food! During company events, the founder and CEO of Ultradent, Dr. Dan Fischer, has been heard many times to say, “Eat up! This is America; no one should go hungry.” Employees of this Utah company wanted to embrace that sentiment and go one step farther to include their community in the fight against hunger. This is how the Heroes v Villains Family Event and Fundraiser came to be!
Roseman University of Health Science, Utah Valley University’s Department of Dental Hygiene, and other local organizations have joined Ultradent in sponsoring this fun family event. Participants who dress up as their favorite superhero or the meanest villain can receive the highest glory as the winner of the costume contest! They can also master the superhero obstacle course, reign supreme in soccer Olympics, and crush the challenges in the Frisbee golf course. The little ones can even race in the Kids 1k Hero Run!
But what is the main event? A 5k like no other: The Tower Battle 5k! People don’t even have to run to join in this event! Those who choose not to run can participate as a Destroyer! Here’s how it works:
Runners choose their team—hero or villain—and with every lap they complete, they will get the chance to deploy Destroyers who will fight to weaken the opposing team’s tower! The Destroyers’ choice of weapon? Water blasters, of course! It will be a battle to remember!
Tickets to participate in the challenges are available starting at $6, and pre-registration for the race registration is $21—which provides 20 meals to the Utah Food Bank! If you sign up for the race on-site, the cost is $30. Remember, all proceeds will be donated to the Utah Food Bank!
Join the event on Facebook to get updates, purchase tickets, and register for the 5k. Thank you for helping Ultradent fight hunger! No matter which team you choose to fight on—heroes or villains—you will be a hero to the Utah Food Bank and to Ultradent!
Sign up here to get information, pre-register, and learn more about the event. We’ll be there and can’t wait to see you all there!
