CASA 5K Superhero Run/Walk presented by the Texas Tech Thetas Returns to the South Plains

Heroes stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. They make sure the most vulnerable among us are protected and feel safe. It doesn’t require a mask, super strength, or mutant powers to be a hero. It just take the will, dedication, and commitment to making a difference in our community. CASA Volunteers are heroes to hundreds of children in foster care. A CASA, or a Court Appointed Special Advocate, helps a child in foster care navigate the child welfare system while working to ensure their needs are met and help find a safe, permanent home. The Texas Tech Kappa Alpha Thetas are excited to announce the return of the CASA 5K Superhero Run/Walk in support of CASA of the South Plains. The CASA 5K Superhero Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, May 4th from 8:30AM – 11:00AM at the Texas Tech Student Recreational Center Sports Fields at 3219 Main Street. Check-in begins at 8:00AM. Registration fees are $15 for children (ages 3-12, children 2 and under free), $20 for college students, and $25 for adults. The registration fee includes an event t-shirt. Runners and walkers of all ages are encouraged to come dressed as your favorite superhero. Activities include a photo booth, face painting, field games, and a costume contest.
