The Hungry for Heroes and Walk Across Wilson event originally set for Saturday is rescheduled to April 7 at 9 a.m. due to the threat of inclement weather.

Youth Leadership’s Hungry for Heroes event will have members will dress as movie heroes and children will have the opportunity to meet their favorite characters, take pictures with them and learn what makes them unique heroes. Parents should bring their own camera.

Admission is one canned food item per person, which will go to the Lebanon Special School District and Wilson County Schools food programs.

The Walk Across Wilson celebration will feature a family walk, festivities, cognitions and door prizes.

Walk Across Wilson is a four-week walking program for teams of about four to eight people. The teams who log the most minutes walking, jogging, dancing or other types of physical activity will be recognized.

The results and award winners will be recognized Saturday for their efforts and participation.

The top two teams from churches and businesses with the most participation Saturday will be awarded a $100 gift card. The proceeds from the event will go directly back to support the needs of Wilson County Schools and the Lebanon Special Schools District.

“It’s great anytime we can do things like this and try to keep people healthy and stress the importance of exercise,” said Tammy Grow, Lebanon Special School District school health coordinator.

Grow, Chuck Whitlock with Wilson County Schools and the hospital collaborated to create Walk Across Wilson in 2016.
