Be a superhero to local kids

Be a superhero to local kids

This Sunday, September 15, our friends at CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Travis County are hosting their 10th annual Superhero Run 5K & Kids 1K at the Broadmoor Campus near the Domain in Austin. In addition to the races, the event features a dance party and adult/children/pet costume contests with trophies and prizes.

Why a superhero theme? Because, to so many children in our community, CASA volunteers are just that! CASA is not your typical volunteer opportunity — the organization advocates and acts as a voice for abused or neglected children. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, judge-appointed, trained CASA volunteers make independent and informed recommendations to the court. Proceeds collected from this event go toward providing the tools necessary to help train those volunteers to be effective advocates for these kids.
