CASA of Bradley and Polk Counties will be hosting a Superhero 5K Run/1 Mile Fun Walk and Family Fun Festival on Nov. 4 at Greenway Park, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The morning will begin with a Superhero 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk — costumes are encouraged. Registration will take place between 8 and 9 a.m., and the race will begin at 9:30 a.m.

There will be food and drinks provided before the run for all participants.

Following the race, the Family Fun Festival will host local businesses and nonprofits in the area with informational booths and activities for children. There will be bounce houses, food, and live music.

The opening performance will be artist Ben Strawn, followed by headliner Monday Night Social.

The Superhero 5K Run/Walk and Family Fun Festival in memory of Melisha Gibson is an opportunity to raise awareness about the pressing need in our community for everyday heroes to swoop in and stand up for vulnerable children in order to guarantee her story will not be repeated.

This event is designed to help ensure every child in Bradley and Polk counties have a safe and permanent place to call home by registering online at http://casabp.org/superhero-5k.

Sponsors are Elliotts Boots, First Baptist Church, Check into Cash, Welcome Valley Village, G.R.A.A.B. Coalition, Peerless Pediatrics and Planet Fitness.

CASA of Bradley and Polk Counties is a non-profit that works with local volunteers to make sure the voices of abused and neglected children are heard. CASA volunteers are everyday residents appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have an unstable home situation. These volunteers speak on behalf of an otherwise voiceless child and represent their best interests in court.
