Shine a Light and Nominate a Hero!
Memorial Day Run 2016

OMAHA, NEB. – Boys Town National Research Hospital is calling on the community to nominate local heroes in recognition of the 2016 Memorial Day Run: We Can Be Heroes.

Some heroes may have capes and superhuman strength, but we know that our fellow community members are heroes too! Any act, big or small, can impact someone’s life and be truly inspiring. We are asking Omaha community members to shine a light on their heroes by sharing their stories!

Select heroes will be recognized during the Memorial Day Run event. Races will start on the Boys Town Campus at 8:00 a.m. with the Kids Fun Run (400 meters), followed by the 1-Mile Walk/Run at 8:15 a.m. and the 5-Mile Walk/Run at 8:45 a.m.

Community members can submit hero stories to Memorialrun@boystownhospital.org or on the Memorial Day Run Facebook page, facebook.com/MemorialDayRun.

Submissions are due Saturday, May 14, 2016 and should include:

  • Name of individual nominating a hero (unless posting via Facebook).
  • Hero nominee’s ​name.
  • Why the hero is being nominated. Reasons may be general character attributes or specific stories that highlight a heroic act.

Please direct all questions to Memorialrun@boystownhospital.org. Watch the video and submit your story!
