About This Activity
CASA programs across the country host family friendly run/walk events to raise awareness about the extraordinary work of CASA volunteers advocating for abused and neglected children in Family Court. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteers are true superheroes who make a difference in the lives of our most vulnerable children. You can be a Superhero for our volunteers and our CASA children, by coming out and participating in our Superhero Run, or by considering a sponsorship or making a donation. 100% of funds raised will allow us to continue our mission of advocating for abused and neglected children in Steuben, Chemung, and Schuyler counties. Your contributions help us to raise awareness, train more volunteers, and serve more children. CASA of the Southern Tier, Inc. is committed to doubling our corps of volunteers by 2020 to support every child we possibly can in need of assistance from a CASA volunteer.
Every child needs a hero but abused children need SUPERHEROES! Join our fight and enjoy a morning of running and family fun. Now is your chance to BE ASUPERHERO!!
