    CASA Superhero Run is Saturday in Chico

    The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program is hosting the 5th annual CASA Superhero Run in Chico's Bidwell Park on Saturday, September 23rd. Another Superhero run takes place in Redding on Saturday, November 4th. 

    It's a fundraiser, based on the belief that every child needs a hero, but abused and neglected children need superheroes.  North State residents are encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero to take part in a 5K run/walk, 10K run or Little Heroes Dash.  The event features chip timing for the 5/10K runs, a pancake breakfast for everyone and awards for age divisions. 

    CASA serves children in foster care as their cases make their way through the courts in Butte, Glenn, Shasta and Tehama Counties.  CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate on behalf of the children, to make sure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with their child until their case is closed and they are placed in a safe, permanent home. 

     

    The Chico Superhero Run starts on the south side of the One-Mile Recreation Area in lower Bidwell Park. You can register at Fleet Feet in Chico, at 241 Main Street, until 6 p.m. Friday September 22nd.    Day-of Registration starts at 7:00 a.m. at the park and will close 20 minutes prior to the start of each race category. The 10K run starts at 7:45 a.m., the 5K walk/run starts at 8:00 a.m. and the Little Heroes Dash starts at 8:45 a.m.

    Redding's Superhero Run is Saturday, November 4th at the Redding Civic Auditorium.
