Join us for the 2nd Annual Superhero 5k/1k Fun Run (Walk, Run or Fly!) at the Abilene Christian University Campus in Abilene, Texas.

 

The goal of our event is to increase awareness of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), to recruit more volunteer advocates for children and to raise funds to support our mission. All proceeds from our race will directly benefit Big Country CASA in our efforts to recruit and train CASA volunteers to give a “voice” to abused and neglected children in court and the Taylor County foster care system.

 

There will be costume contests held for adults (13+), kids (12 and under) and pets!

Race t-shirts will be guaranteed to those registered by Monday, April 9, 2018.

Bring the family! Perfect for ALL ages and fitness levels!
