About The Hunter 5K
In December of 2018, Hunter Lane Henderson tragically passed away after he was critically injured at home while playing with his sister. The Hunter 5K was created to honor and celebrate his fast and free spirit. Hunter loved Halloween and dressed up in costume year-round, so it is only fitting that the Hunter 5K be held on Halloween weekend!
We are bringing back the in-person race this year, but also offering a virtual registration option. Wherever you run, we strongly encourage you to dress in your most creative Halloween costumes and go for your personal best race time!
PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT THE DELL CHILDREN’S MEDICAL CENTER THROUGH DELL CHILDREN'S TRUST
This year, funds raised through the Hunter 5K will benefit the Dell Children’s
Medical Center through the Dell Children’s Trust. The care and attention given by doctors, nurses and staff at Dell Children’s Medical Center made a truly traumatic time a little less painful for the Henderson family.
As an Ascension Seton nonprofit hospital, Dell Children’s Medical Center is the only Level One Trauma Center serving a 46-county region across Central Texas, and beyond. Caring for a population of roughly 70% uninsured or underinsured patient families, philanthropic support from our community ensures that no child is ever turned away regardless of their families’ ability to pay.
Please make a gift to impact the lives of local children today.
