On December 28th of 2018, Hunter Lane Henderson tragically passed away. The Hunter 5k is being created to honor and celebrate his fast and free spirit. Hunter loved Halloween and dressed up in costume throughout the year. Costumes are optional and encouraged at this race.
The Hunter 5K is an inspiration of Chance, Hunter’s father. He is moved to create a fun and inclusive event that Hunter would be proud of.
Proceeds Will Benefit the Austin Cops for Charities
Austin Cops for Charities (C4C) helped the Henderson family immensely during their difficult period following Hunter’s passing. The C4C has the mission of joining Austin Police Officers together in efforts to support local charitable agencies and provide aid and support to Austin Police Officers and their families in times of need.
