HISTORY Matt St. James is a 2003 Churchville-Chili High School graduate. He graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2007 with a degree in Social Work. As an undergraduate, Matthew was a top runner on the Cross Country and Track teams for four years. He was out running every day, giving it his all, running for the glory of God. On March 14, 2007, Matt was running at practice on the outdoor track when he had cardiac arrest with a brain injury as a result. After spending over 3 years at Monroe Community Hospital, he is now living at home. Matt has come a long way since that day. God is doing a mighty work in Matt.

The Heritage Hero is a walk, 5K race and all new 10K race that supports people with developmental disabilities, children and seniors through the work of Heritage Christian Services. The event will again be hosted for the second year in a row at the ever popular Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester! We invite you to come out and race and/or walk and then enjoy a day of fun all of the rides and slides!
At the Heritage Hero, we recognize those heroes who make us proud and help us become better people. Their warm spirit and positive outlook on life inspires everyone around them. Honor a family member enlisted in the armed forces, or a survivor of a serious illness. Maybe you’ll participate for a loved one whose spirit burns brightly despite their passing.
By supporting the Heritage Hero, you’re helping people live the best life possible – one that’s full of compassion and dignity. That’s why we fundraise every year to grow the Heritage Christian Services Foundation. Your support makes a difference in the lives of people today and in the future. Thank you for your continued support for Heritage Christian Services.
Come walk or run either a 5K road course or 5K trail course.
The X-Challenge will take place for those running on the trail and will offer an X-tra challenge. Anyone up for the challenge and who would like to participate in the X-Challenge, will complete push-ups, air squats and burpees AT EACH MILE (push-ups at mile one, air squats at mile two, and burpees at mile three). The total amount of push-ups, air squats and burpees will be scaled based on the total amount with the total number being determined by the total amount of money raised for the event.
Your participation in the event helps raise awareness and provide hope in recovery to the thousands of Rochester residents and their families who are battling addiction. In addition, funds raised will support the programs that ROCovery provides free of charge that are vital and life saving to our over 3,000 members and their family members.
Since 2006 ACORNS has provided financial and volunteer support for projects and programs that enhance and supplement the recreational, environmental and educational activities at the Genesee County parks.

50 Mile – Run one big road loop around the most beautiful Finger Lake in Western New York. The course is mostly flat to rolling roads with several major climbs, including locally-famous Bopple Hill.
50K – Run point-to-point over the final 31 miles of the 50 Mile route. With significantly less climbing and descending than the first 19 miles of the 50 Mile route, the 50K is more friendly for first-time ultra runners and a logical step up from the marathon.
25Km – Not ready to run ultra yet? Try 25Km instead! Run point-to-point over the final 14.5 miles of the 50 Mile/50 Km route after running short out-and-back starting on and using South Lake road. Time limit is 6 1/2 hours. Minimum average speed to complete 25Km race is 2.07 miles per hour or 25 minutes per mile. Please note that 25Km race won’t allow pacers and handlers.
