About the Race


What is the Elevate 5K All About?

Shortly following the loss of her husband Craig Perry to colorectal cancer in 2011, Marsha Perry and good friend Rich Hart, owner of Elevate Fitness & Rehab began thinking of ways to remember Craig and to carry on his kindness and love for others. Together, Rich and Marsha came up with the “Be A Hero” Elevate 5K, a charity race to benefit local families battling cancer. The first race was held in 2012 and has continued to grow each year.

Since 2012, the Elevate 5K has donated over $150,000 to local individuals who are battling cancer.

The Elevate 5K is held annually at the Security Metrics building in Orem, Utah. The event is much more than just a race, it’s a party–complete with bounce houses, live DJ, in-costume superheroes, charity auction, free food, prize giveaways… and so much more. We love to help, and we love to have fun in the process!

The Craig Perry Foundation is a registered 501-(c)(3) non profit organization.
