A Hero’s 5K is a 501(c)3 organization founded to raise awareness of the sacrifices made each day by the United States military personnel and to raise money to support the needs of South Carolina servicemen and women and their families. A Hero’s 5K walk/run is held annually in February at Furman University. It grew out of friendship between Cheryl Childers and Debby Whitsitt, and the compassion Cheryl Childers had for her hurting friend, whose son, SPC. Geoffrey Whitsitt, had been killed in action in Afghanistan on Jan. 13, 2010. Cheryl walked with Debby in her grieving, and one of the many ways she reached out was the concept and establishment of the A Hero’s 5K. It quickly grew into an organization of dedicated volunteer staff, and it provides a vehicle to a world-wide community allowing them to be part of that loving care – reaching out to help other hurting military veterans and their families.
