The CASA Superhero Run returns to the Circuit of the Americas on Sunday, September 17th. CEO of CASA of Travis County, Laura Wolf, joined Studio 512 to talk more about the event.

“Serving as the opening race of the renowned Austin Distance Challenge, this event guarantees a morning packed with excitement, including a 5K, Kids Fun Run, and family-friendly festival with a
costume contest.

“The CASA Superhero Run funds and raises awareness to serve children who’ve experienced
abuse or neglect by providing them with dedicated CASA volunteers. These volunteers
advocate for their safety, well-being, and for opportunities to thrive. CASA believes every child
deserves to grow up happy, healthy, and able to become their own superhero.
The event is a combined effort of four different CASA programs covering nine counties: CASA
of Travis County, CASA of Williamson County, CASA of Central Texas (Caldwell, Comal,
Guadalupe & Hays Counties), and CASA of Bastrop, Fayette, and Lee Counties.”
