Watkins Glen, NY

About This Activity

CASA programs across the country host family friendly run/walk events to raise awareness of the CASA program and 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. Funds raised will allow us to continue our mission of advocating for abused and neglected children in our tri-county area. Your contributions help us to raise more awareness, train more volunteers, and serve more children in Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties. CASA of the Southern Tier, Inc. is committed to doubling our corps of volunteers by 2020 so that every child who needs a CASA volunteer has one in our community. We ask that you join our fight for a morning of running and family fun—and you will help us reach every child!
