Superhero 5K at Warner Robins Campus August 29

Every child needs a hero, but abused children need Superheroes!  Come as you are or dress up as your favorite Superhero!! Middle Georgia State University is partnering with CASA of Houston County to sponsor a 5K and Fun Run on Saturday August 29th. All participants who register by Friday, August 14, 2015 will receive a performance t- shirt. Registrants after August 14th will receive a T-shirt while supplies last. Capes are available for purchase as well.

Why are we running? Did you know that 54% of foster children in Houston County do not have a CASA advocate?  CASAs or Court Appointed Special Advocates are a national organization of screened and trained volunteers that judges appoint to speak for the safety and well-being of abused and neglected children.  They make recommendations that children are placed in a forever home as quickly as possible.  Also, research shows that children with a CASA volunteer are much less likely to languish in long-term foster care.  Your support helps CASA reach the goal of providing a much-needed voice for EVERY child!
