Superhero Run 5k PittsburghOver this past weekend a few staff took a little road trip down to Pittsburgh, PA to visit our friends at CASA of Allegheny County. The trip was planned by our Executive Director Cindy Booth. The purpose behind the trip was to visit a CASA program that has executed a Superhero Run event successfully, as we have decided to add this to our list of events in 2012.

Our friends in Pittsburgh are in their second year doing a Superhero Run and I’ll have to say it was very exciting to see the amount of people out to support CASA! We had a wonderful time visiting our friends in Pittsburgh and learning from their race experiences. We were able to participate on race day, dressing up as superheros and running the course. It was a wonderful experience and we are looking very forward to our race in October. We are definitely grateful to Melissa and Monica for taking time out of their very busy schedules to show us how to run such a great event!

Details and specifics are still in the works for our 2012 CASA Superhero 5K/1K Run/Walk…..but information will be on our website soon! We have secured a date so be sure to mark your calendars for October 27 2012 for our first Annual CASA Superhero Run! Dress as your favorite superhero and come out to support a great cause!

Every child needs a hero, but abused children need superheros! For more information on the Superhero Foundation and their partnership with CASA programs go to www.superherorun.com. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Child Advocates Superhero Run/Walk on OCTOBER 27, 2012!
