Did you ever want to be a superhero and do something amazing!? CASA of Tarrant County needs your help at the 1st Annual Superhero Run/Walk on Saturday, December 13, at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
Located in the heart of Arlington’s entertainment district, the 5K Run/Walk is a USATF Certified course. The event also features a 1 Mile Fun Run, costume contests for youth and adults, kids’ activities, free parking, free t-shirt and goody bag for all registrants, and a covered vendor lane.
This event will support advocacy for children in foster care, and is a fantastically fun, family friendly, action-packed way of making a big difference in a child’s life. CASA of Tarrant County is preparing for over 500 big and little superheroes from around the community who will run and walk for the most important cause imaginable.
In 2013, over 350 CASA volunteers – Superheroes – joined CASA of Tarrant County, serving as friends of the court, speaking up for children who were placed in foster care. Volunteers raised their voices against the unspeakable atrocities of child abuse and neglect and served 802 children in Tarrant County. But the need for courageous advocates is still great. Tarrant County has the 2nd highest child abuse rate in the state, and over 350 children are still waiting on the voice of a crusading CASA volunteer.
For more information about the Superhero Run/Walk or CASA of Tarrant County, call (817) 877-5891 or visit www.speakupforachild.org. The event also includes costume contests and prizes. Join us as we celebrate the everyday Superheroes who are making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children.
