MedAssets Hire Heroes USA 5k Race for Heroes Raises over $160,000

Hire Heroes USA is proud to announce that the MedAssets Hire Heroes USA 5K Race for Heroes events held in Alpharetta, GA and Plano, TX raised over $160,000 this year! This would not have been possible without our hardworking volunteers who generously donated their time to plan and execute the event, as well as the nearly 1,000 members of the community that attended or sponsored the races.


Race-day participants enjoyed post-race activities including food vendors, DJs, bouncy houses, and giveaways. Awards were given out to the top 3 finishers in 13 age groups for males and females. President and CEO of Hire Heroes USA, Brian Stann, was on hand to accept the final check from MedAssets.
