PHOTOS: #ONEBRAVE Virtual 5K Is A Community Hit

Saturday, April 25th marked the 9th anniversary of Indian Hill’s Conquer The Hill 5K Race/Walk, a fun morning of fitness meant to be shared with family, friends and community members. While this year’s race had a decidedly different look to it, there were plenty of Superheroes out and about to carry on a great neighborhood tradition.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there was no official registration at the Indian Hill High School rotunda. Nor was there a gathering of runners, walkers and strollers in front of the Auditorium, waiting for the official firing pistol to signify the take-off.

Instead, the community came together under a #ONEBRAVE Virtual 5K initiative that kept everyone connected through individual participation and social media.

Sponsored by the Indian Hill Foundation and the Indian Hill District Wellness Committee, along with support from Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Park National Bank and many other generous community groups, the event received a very strong response from district families who celebrated in their own way.

Dan Marshall (IHHS ’87), who has performed as musical entertainment at Conquer The Hill post-race festivities, turned his talents to designing a special #ONEBRAVE race bib image with the #ONEBRAVE theme that participants could download and print. On the official day of the race, familiar faces were popping up everywhere with the #ONEBRAVE bibs and individual paces. Indian Hill teachers and administrators had a strong showing as well, all in support of our community solidarity.

Stated Indian Hill Foundation Board Vice President Janet McMillan, “The Conquer The Hill 5K has always been a strong community event, usually drawing around 400 participants. It has always attracted competitive runners, student athletes, neighborhood walkers and even grandparents and young parents pushing toddlers in strollers. This year, everyone got to make wellness progress in their own personal way, and they crossed their own finish lines with family, furry friends and a great sense of price in the #ONEBRAVE community. This year, we are all on the same team.”
