The 2020 CASA Superhero Run is going VIRTUAL and features a Superhero SERIES (1mile, 5K, 10K, and 8mile), a HALF-MARATHON, and introducing the HERO ZERO-K (do nothing and STILL be a hero...and get a shirt and medal!) The Capes for CASA Team Fundraising Competition is back and this year, we've also added a YOUTH COMPETITION
Dust off your cape and lace up your running shoes...Children in foster care are counting on your fantastic "feets" of strength, mile by mile!
Join forces with your fellow SUPERHEROES to run, walk (or hey, just sit on the couch in your PJs and still be a HERO!) in support of abused and neglected children in Montgomery County.
The 11th Annual CASA Superhero Run features:
VIRTUAL EVENT!* Choose your distance or run/walk the whole series. You decide your own course - run around your neighborhood, walk laps around your pool, or take to the trails! It's all up to you! (P.S. If you're planning to participate in another distance event, this virtual series is an excellent way to train...) Join the Facebook Group HERE! *Although this will not be a timed event through a timing company, we MAY still be offering you an option of uploading your time to an online spreadsheet. Data from registration questions will be used to populate the timing spreadsheet. Finishers will be able to view their overall standings, however top finisher medals will not be awarded this year as results be dependent upon the honor system and therefore unverified.
Capes for CASA Team Fundraising Competition Summon your Superhero Squad to have fun, raise money – virtually - to make a difference in kids’ lives, and earn some seriously amazing prizes (more info to come...) while you do it! Plus, the top fundraising team will be remembered forever! Their team name will be engraved on the traveling “Capes for CASA” trophy base AND you get to display the trophy and bragging rights for the next year! (AWC Frac Valves claimed the 2019 title...) TEAM CAPTAINS GO HERE for tips and team resources! NEW FOR 2020 - Capes for CASA High School, Junior High, and Youth Team Competitions! Whether it's your cross country or track team, your volleyball or football teammates, or your student council members wanting to challenge National Honor Society members, you can form teams and sign up for the CASA Superhero Run to earn up to TWO trophies in each division - one for the largest number of participants on a team, and one for the highest fundraising amount by a team!
