CASA of South Central Kentucky will be holding its 4th Annual Superhero 5k and Kids 1 mile run presented by Cheetah Clean Auto Wash on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at 8:30 am at Kereiakes Park, 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.

Event registration and check-in begins at 7:30 am at the shelter at Kereiakes Park. The 1 mile Kids Run for Kids begins at 8:30 a.m. The 5K Run/Walk starts at 9:00 am. The 5k Run will be a timed race. At 9:45 am, after the 5k, there will 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!
