Mile of Heroes Project

Mile of Heroes is Black Canyon City's response to COVID cancelling our annual Veterans Day parade in 2020. The project continued - and grew - in 2021, and will expand in 2022. Mile of Heroes is sponsored by the Republican Women of Black Canyon.  Funds raised through the project are donated to veteran organizations. We're looking forward to the time we can honor our veterans with the Mile of Heroes Project and a parade.

Below are a few pictures of the 2021 Mile of Heroes running along the main street of Black Canyon City, AZ. The veteran does not have to live in Black Canyon City, or be a relative of residents who live here.  If someone is  a veteran, we want to honor them.  You can also sponor a veteran.
