Every child needs a hero, but abused children need Superheroes!
Calling all Superheroes!!!! May is National Foster Child Awareness Month and you can help show your support. CASA asks that superheroes of all ages gather at White Sulphur Springs Elementary School for a 5K, 1 mile Family Fun /Walk Run, and children’s race on Saturday May 27, 2017. Bring your family and join our league of superheroes! The race is in tandem with the annual West Virginia Dandelion Festival held there on Memorial Day weekend. This race will benefit CASA of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, which serves Pocahontas and Greenbrier counties. Prizes will be awarded for the best costume and the best family/group costumes. This year we will also have villains for the “Superheroes” to chase.
