Event Details

The Hero Dog Jog 5k is back for a 2nd running. In 2016 Kaylee Pearson, a Decatur Central Senior, launched this 5K run/walk as a senior project. She was able to make a huge impact for her community and raise over $11,000 for the IMPD K-9 Unit. Now after a small hiatus, the event is BACK!

The Hero Dog Jog 5k will take place on Decatur school property making for a fast, flat, and well supported 5k Run/Walk. Community members and runners/walkers from around the city, be sure to mark April 20th on your calendars and register today to support the local pups who put their lives on the line daily for their handlers, and for our city! Let's support Kaylee as she moves forward to support these silent Hero's! We look forward to seeing you all on race day!

Charity Mission

Words from Race Director: Kaylee Pearson in 2016

"I am creating this race to raise money for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) K-9 Unit. I am doing this as school project for a senior expedition. Online registration is live with an average cost of $25. The first 200 people to register will recieve a Hero Dog Jog T-shirt. This will be a great way to spend time with your family, do something active to welcome spring, and support the men, women, and K-9s in blue who protect this city every day."
