8th Annual CASA Superhero Run

Superheroes prove that no matter your childhood, all kids can grow up to do great things

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. Thor was kicked out of Asgard by his dad but eventually reunified with his family. Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA, a nonprofit that advocates for children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect, believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves.

That’s why CASA is hosting the 8th Annual CASA Superhero Run. This run raises funds and awareness to provide children who’ve been abused or neglected with the powerful voice of their very own CASA volunteer. Children with CASA volunteers are more likely to end up with family, more likely to receive therapy, health care and education, more likely to do better in school, less likely to be bounced from one place to another, and less likely to get stuck in long-term foster care than children without CASA.

About CASA:

CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. After intensive training, background checks and being sworn-in by a judge, volunteers are appointed to a child or family of children and spend an average of 15-20 hours a month advocating for these children for at least a year. CASA of Travis County (www.casatravis.org) was founded in 1985 and supports nearly 750 volunteers who advocate for almost 1,850 children a year. CASA of Williamson County (www.casawilco.org) was founded in 2009 and supports over 100 volunteers who advocate for more than 200 children a year. CASA of Central Texas (www.casacentex.org - serving Caldwell, Comal, Guadalupe & Hays Counties) was founded in 1985 and supports more than 200 volunteers who advocate for nearly 500 children a year.
