CASA Superhero Run-Leavenworth

This race supports the 1st Judicial District Court Appointed Special Advocate program. The CASA concept is based on the belief that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home. Unlike attorneys and social workers, the CASA volunteer speaks exclusively for the child’s best interests. This provides safe, responsible care for foster children and those impacted by divorces. Please revise our entry into your race calendar. We have renamed our race to align with nationwide CASA efforts. Please feel free to contact me direct if necessary with any questions. Our new web link is included with this new request. Thanks
