Heroes are getting ready to run, walk, fly and maybe even crawl into Rome for the 2018 edition of the Harbin Hero Hustle 5K and two-mile health walk on Sept.  29. But before the race can soar into action, the Harbin Heroes need your help in selecting five local charities to participate in the Harbin Hero Challenge. These charities are superheroes for the community and will receive a portion of $4,250 in donations from Harbin Clinic. The nomination period ends at 10 p.m. on Friday, July 27. To nominate a charity, individuals need to post the charity name and include the hash tag,#HarbinHeroChallenge to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  A quick note: Shares and likes don’t count, as nominations and creating an image with the hashtag and charity name won’t work either. The hashtag “#HarbinHeroChallenge” must be in the text of the post or comment, or the vote doesn’t count. For expanded details, please click Harbin Hero Hustle.
