John bravely battled his cancer, enduring four difficult years of surgeries and treatments with a strong resolve and a positive attitude. John touched and inspired so many lives with his engaging and heartwarming approach to life, leaving lasting memories with all those he encountered. John truly was a Superhero - please come to celebrate his life and memory at the Superheroes 5K. All proceeds from the event will go to the John Shapiro Superheroes Foundation and will benefit local families with children battling cancer. 8:30 a.m. - 1 Mile Run/Walk 9:00 a.m. - 5K Run 10:00 a.m.- Fun Run (children ages 6 and under) For more information visit: www.johnshapirosuperheroes.org
