Event Details

The Heroes for History Stair Challenge Tribute 5k is an annual, competitive race and fun walk event. For athletes, the competitive race is professionally timed. For casual participants, the length of the run is the participant’s choice, with encouragement to dress as their favorite hero. A fun run/walk event begins the festivities for those who wish to participate at their own level.

The Heroes for History Stair Challenge Tribute will be held on Saturday morning, SEPTEMBER 11, 2021, the 20th Anniversary of a day in history that we will always remember, September 11, 2001.

We will be honoring our local first responders and all Heroes who work for the common good. The funds raised from this event are split equally between local first responders (Fire Department, EMTs, Police, Sheriff) and the Galena-Jo Daviess County Historical Society.

The Galena Fire Department will be sponsoring a Street Dance following the 5k challenge. All are welcome to participate!!

Street Dance rain location: Turner Hall located on 115 S. Bench Street, Galena, IL
