About This Activity

In Texas, more than 3 children die from child abuse or neglect on an average every week, 182 children are confirmed victims daily, and more than 7 children are maltreated every hour.  CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County provides and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child can have the opportunity to thrive in a safe, nurturing and permanent home.  Now is the time to get involved and support a better future for these children.

Whether you are a competitive runner, a casual walker, or just love the idea of supporting a wonderful cause, participating in the CASA SuperHero Run allows you to show your support for abused and neglected children in Montgomery County. Every child needs a hero.  Abused children need SUPERHEROES!

______________________________________________________________________

The 5th annual CASA SuperHero Run takes place in a scenic, point-to-point course through W.G. Jones State Forest. Both 10K and 5K courses start on the south end of W.G. Jones State Forest (at The Woodlands Christian Academy campus) and, after a natural terrain trail run through the forest, proceed to the finish line back at The Woodlands Christian Academy campus. The event also includes complimentary refreshments, top-notch "Race Village", and post-race festival complete with music and family activities.

The CASA SuperHero Run features high-demand, natural terrain and is the ONLY run in Montgomery County with a course through W.G. Jones State Forest.  Register early!
