CASA Superhero Run/Walk on Saturday, Sept. 22



CASA of South Central Kentucky will be holding its 5th Annual Superhero 5K, Kids 1 Mile Fun Run, and 1 Mile Family Walk/Run presented by Cheetah Clean Auto Wash on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 9:00 am at Ephram White Park, 885 Mt. Olivet Road, in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

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. Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA, a non-profit that advocates for children who’ve experienced abuse and neglect, believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy. Competitive runners and walkers, recreational walkers, employee groups, and families are all invited to become “superheroes” for the day by participating in this healthy and fun activity. There will also be family friendly activities like a bouncy house, face painting, live music, and food trucks. Please visit www.casaofsck.org/superhero2018 to complete your registration online.

Event registration and check-in begins at 7:30 am at the Amy Milliken Shelter at Ephram White Park. The 5K Run will begin promptly at 9:00 am. The 5k Run will be a timed race and is part of the Bowling Green Road Runners Grand Prix Points Series. At 9:30 am, the 1 Mile Family Walk will begin. At 10:00 am, the 1 Mile Kid’s Fun Run will begin. An awards ceremony will then be held following all events at 10:30am. The race has a unique Superhero Search element where the 5K participants bring action figures that have been dropped on the race course back to the finish line for prizes. There will also be a Superhero Costume Contest while we await tally of race winners. Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Superhero to show their spirit as a hero against child abuse and neglect!

All proceeds from the CASA Superhero 5K, 1 Mile Kid’s Fun Run, and 1 Mile Family Walk will benefit CASA of South Central Kentucky serving Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Metcalfe, and Warren counties. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of South Central KY, Inc. is a non-profit agency dedicated to eliminating trauma to children.
