CASA Hosts 3rd Annual SuperHero Run
LANCASTER, PA (May 8, 2014) - Join us Saturday, June 21, 2014 at 8:30am for CASA’s 3rd Annual SuperHero 5K & Kids Fun Run at Hempfield High School Stadium.
Come dressed as your favorite SuperHero or just as you are!
In 2013, adults and children alike came dressed as SuperHeroes to show their support for the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) cause.
The SuperHero 5K is a fast, flat course and runs through local neighborhoods before returning to the Hempfield High School Stadium.
"There are many road races in Lancaster and the surrounding areas, but the SuperHero aspect makes this race unique and fun,” stated Jessica Laspino, Executive Director of CASA of Lancaster.
CASA will be offering awards for the top three male and female finishers in each age group. There will also be awards given for Best Individual Costume, Best Family / Group Costume, and Best Children’s Costume.
Following the 5K is a Kids Fun Run. Children 3 to 12 run age appropriate distances on the track. Children registered for the Kids Fun Run by June 6 are guaranteed a SuperHero cape along with their goodie bag.
Before and after the race enjoy a fun and FREE family festival with games and activities including a bounce house, face painting, and a balloonist.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lancaster County exists to provide a qualified and compassionate court-appointed volunteer advocate to every child who is abused and neglected, to ensure the fundamental human right of having a safe, nurturing, and permanent home is met. CASA works with Lancaster County’s most vulnerable youth – those who have experienced abuse and neglect so severe that they have been removed from their homes and placed into the foster care system.
