About the CASA Superhero Run:
Run, walk or fly to the 2017 CASA Superhero Run on Sunday, September 17th at the Domain Central Park where you can be a superhero for children who've been abused or neglected. Join CASA for this 5K and Kids 1K with a superhero costume contest, obstacle course by BAM Academy, bounce houses, special superhero guest appearances and lots of fun family activities! The CASA Superhero Run supports the CASA programs of Travis, Williamson, Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe & Hays Counties. CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. Visit www.casasuperherorun.com to register or donate to kids today!
Superman was adopted. Spiderman was raised by his aunt and uncle. Batman grew up with his butler, Alfred, and later took in Robin to raise as his ward. Thor was kicked out of Asgard by his dad but eventually reunified with his family. Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves.
CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. After intensive training, background checks and being sworn-in by a judge, volunteers are appointed to a child or family of children and spend an average of 15-20 hours a month advocating for these children for at least a year. CASA of Travis County was founded in 1985 and supports nearly 750 volunteers who advocate for almost 1,850 children a year. CASA of Williamson County was founded in 2009 and supports over 100 volunteers who advocate for more than 200 children a year. CASA of Central Texas (serving Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe & Hays Counties) was founded in 1985 and supports more than 200 volunteers who advocate for nearly 500 children a year.
