CASA sponsors this event to raise funds and awareness in support of children who’ve been abused or neglected. Join us as we welcome guests Josh Rodriguez and his son Santiago who will be particpating in the event and Cosplayer Robin Johnson. 

Superman was adopted. Spiderman was raised by his aunt and uncle. Batman grew up with his butler, Alfred, and later took in Robin to raise as his ward. Thor was kicked out of Asgard by his dad but eventually reunified with his family. Few superheroes grew up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA, a nonprofit that advocates for children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect, believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves.


That’s why the CASA programs of Travis and Williamson counties are hosting the 4 Annual CASA Superhero Run. This run raises funds and awareness to provide children who’ve been abused or neglected with the powerful voice of their very own CASA volunteer. Children with CASA volunteers are more likely to end up with family, more likely to receive therapy, health care and education, more likely to do better in school, less likely to be bounced from one place to another, and less likely to get stuck in long-term foster care than children without CASA.
