An Evening With Heroes

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday, January 21, for the 17th An Evening With Heroes Gala.  The night was a success, raising nearly $345,000, and fun had by all.

We are already making plans for 2018, so stay tuned!  The date for the 2018 Gala is Saturday, January 20th, 2018, at the JW Marriott Indy!




Spin4Heroes is an indoor relay-style team spinning event. A team captain registers the team, recruits the team members, and then together they raise funds for the Heroes Foundation. Anyone can participate in Spin4Heroes! It doesn’t matter if you have never been on a bike, take weekly spin classes, or if you compete on the local/regional cycling circuit. You can work out as hard (or as little) as you want! Remember, the bike is just the vehicle to achieve our end-goal — to provide meaningful support to cancer patients, education to promote cancer prevention and resources to advance research for a cure.

Thanks to support from participants, sponsors and volunteers, Spin4Heroes on March 11, 2017, raised a total of $64,000 to back the Heroes Foundation’s cancer fundraiser and initiatives around support, research and prevention. Held for the first time at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, 65 teams of four people each took to the turf where the Indianapolis Colts practice. A surprise to all, Coach Chuck Pagano stopped by to encourage the crowd, remind them of the reason behind the spinning, and ride alongside Spin4Heroes fundraisers.

Heroes young and older spun for four hours to show their support of the cancer community, get in a great workout and have fun. They jumped in the bounce house, took photos with a giant Colts inflatable and tossed corn hole bags. Many tested their reaction time on The Batak game (used by Indy 500 drivers), pushed through the Fitlivin obstacle course and ran around on the practice field!

Heroes Criterium

Thank you for your continued interest and support of the Heroes Criterium, scheduled for Saturday, July 15th, 2017.  We have made the thoughtful and difficult decision to cancel the event.  This decision was made in the best interest of all involved.

Your generous support of the Heroes Foundation and our events is paramount to our mission to provide meaningful support to cancer patients, education to promote cancer prevention and resources to advance research for a cure.  After thorough evaluation, we felt that this was the best decision since the situation would not provide the optimum showcase for the participants, sponsors, and community; thus our decision to cancel this year’s event.

We have a solid vision for this event, and with last week’s hiring announcement, we look forward to working on the 2018 Heroes Crit now!  Thank you for understanding that sometimes taking a step back is the only way to move forward.  We look forward to keeping you abreast of our plans for this event for 2018.

Heroes Golf


Presented by Felderman Design-Build and Tito’s Handmade Vodka

On September 15, 2017, the inaugural Swing4Heroes Pro-Am golf event, presented by Felderman Design-Build and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, paired-up a professional golfer with a foursome of golfers for multi-level tournament play.  This was not your typical charity scramble, but rather a tournament with both the foursomes, and the pros, vying for some coveted Heroes hardware!  A great day was had by all and in the end, over $73,000 was raised!




#PIFF Party

Bigfoot Yancey, Mike & Joe, Flat12 Bierwerks, Smoking Goose, Hoagies & Hops, and good friends all came together to support the Indiana cancer community on Friday, September 15th by raising $35,000.

The all-important money raised at these events help:

  • Cancer patients of all ages fight bravely
  • Researchers working toward better cancer outcomes
  • Caregivers seeking real support





Heroes Foundation events raise funds and build community around our mission, and present businesses opportunities to be heroes for the Central Indiana cancer community. Summit Sponsorship Packages and à la carte Event Sponsorships are available.
