BackaHero.Today  is a public charity 501 (c) (3) which means when you donate your gifts are tax-deductible under IRC Section 170.  Your bequests, devices, transfers and gifts are also tax deductible under Section 20155, 2106, or 2522.  So please consider joining the BackaHeroBattalion (with a one time or monthly gift) today!

The mission here at BackaHero.Today  is to lend a helping hand to local heroes when the need arises.  Soldiers, police officers, firefighters, emergency medical responders, moms, dads, and children can be everyday heroes when they live a life of sacrifice to serve others.  Heroes are those who routinely sacrifice their own wants and needs in times of crisis to help others.

At BackaHero.Today  we want to help rally our community so when heroes need help they know we have their back.

Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a sponsor of The Heroes' Challenge... because every dollar of sponsorship means another dollar can go to directly helping local Heroes in our community!

BackaHero.Today  is able to say with pride that we work to maximize how far every dollar goes, so that 100% OF EVERY DOLLAR after expenses GOES DIRECTLY TO HELPING LOCAL HEROES!

BackaHero.Today donated $901 in 2015, $2038 in 2016, and $2100 in 2017, and $5200 in 2018 to Point Man Ministries. We are excited to partner with Point Man Ministries to not only support local military members and their families, but also to be able to help support other vital programs, such as the Veterans Village, a village of micro homes currently being built to support women vets (with children) who are experiencing homelessness in the Vancouver/SW Washington area, and several hunting and fishing trips with Heroes

To have the backs of Heroes we need you!  The goal of BackaHero.Today is to provide the highest quality race experience we can for each and every Challenger.  In 2016 we brought on Scovel Racing to provide "chip-timing" for all event Challengers. We also added an extra hill to The Heroes' Challenge Run to stretch it out to a half-marathon.   In 2017 we added a Track Walk for those that want a smooth flat walk that is NOT timed, as well as a "Virtual Team" for those that want to skip the exercise and go directly to getting pledges and raising money for Heroes.  In 2018 we made the event more accessible by moving the Heroes' Challenge in to downtown Washougal, and replaced the 30-mile Bike Race with a Children's event and add a Finishers' Beer Garden. In 2019 we have added a sports t-shirt with each paid registration, a Raffle! and expanded the RTB (Return to Base) brunch to a BBQ and invited the general public to join us for a Patriots' BBQ and Concert with tickets available for $10 a person (or free is you register to run/walk/virtual).

Please give your time, energy, and treasure to support a great cause... helping soldiers and their families rebuild after sacrificing for us, our country, and defending Liberty around the world. They gave for us... today lets give to them.  Register today to Run, Walk, or join our "Virtual Team" and then get pledges and truly BackaHero.Today
