AUSTIN (KXAN) — Caped crusaders will fill the IBM Client Innovation Center for the CASA Superhero Run.
This run raises funds and awareness to provide children who’ve been abused or neglected with the powerful voice of their very own CASA volunteer.
The run, sponsored by KNVA, will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 16, at the IBM Client Innovation Center at the Broadmoor Campus. Registration and costume contest begins at 7 a.m., with the 5K starting at 8 a.m. The kids 1K with villains to chase will start at 9:15 a.m. Kids of all ages can enjoy bounce houses, an obstacle course, photo booths and get to meet their very own superheroes!
CASA draws on superheroes and their unique origin stories. Superman was adopted. Spiderman was raised by his aunt and uncle. Batman grew up with his butler, Alfred.
Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA, a nonprofit that advocates for children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect, believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves.
