You don’t have to fly to be a Super Hero or have super powers to help those in need, you can walk.

Hillcrest Transitional Living is holding its thirteenth annual walkathon on Saturday May 17 to raise money to help local Hillcrest residents overcome homelessness.

Though the cause is serious, the daylong, fun-filled event for the family includes the walk, prizes, face-painting, hair braiding, a bounce house, a raffle, food and more. Live music will be performed by Jodi Austin and Black Diamond.

Participants are encouraged to dress as their favorite super hero. They are also urged to collect pledges and donations as part of their "Super Hero quest." Those who collect $50 or more are eligible for prizes.

The all-ages walk benefits Hillcrest Transitional Housing of Eastern Jackson County, which operates the Lee’s Summit and Independence locations for the homeless. Hillcrest has a mission to help people with a hand up, not a hand out.

"Events like the Super Hero Walk for the Homeless prove that you don’t have to have super strength to help people in need," said Cotton Sivilis, director of Hillcrest Transitional Housing of Eastern Jackson County. "Not only are the participants everyday heroes, the Hillcrest residents are heroes, too. They’ve overcome tough situations to better their living situations for their families."

The Super Hero walk begins at Unity Village, 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, MO. Check-in time is 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10.

Sign up for the walk online at hillcresttransitionalhousing.org.
