4th Annual Superhero 5k

Attention Superheroes! Lace up your running shoes and race for a cause – to help abused children in need! The Guardian Ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay invites you to the 4th Annual SuperHero 5K, Walk and Stroller Roll!

Make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child today by participating in the 4th annual SuperHero 5K. This event will raise community awareness for the more than 5,000 children in Pinellas and Pasco Counties who have been removed from their homes by no fault of their own.

Whether you are a competitive runner, a casual walker, or just love the idea of supporting a wonderful cause, participating in the Superhero 5k allows you to show your support for abused and neglected children in Pinellas and Pasco Counties. The family-friendly, all ages, and abilities event will be held on Saturday, October 13, starting and ending at Nolan’s Pub, 230 Main Street, Safety Harbor.

SuperHero costumes are encouraged but not required. The race course will run along the beautiful Safety Harbor waterfront. We will kick off at 8:30am with the 5K Run with carnival activities afterwards for runners and families. Awards will be given for top qualifiers of the 5K Run. Snacks and water will also be provided. A school uniform collection drive will be held to benefit the children served by the Guardian ad Litem program.

About the Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay: Foster children need more support than the system can provide. Therefore, every Judicial Circuit is mandated to have a private 501(c)3 nonprofit entity to support the needs of the Guardian ad Litem volunteers and the children they serve. In Pinellas and Pasco County, there are currently 3,007 children in foster care and 120 more come into care on average each month. Guardian ad Litem Volunteers are the voice of the child in court and the child’s best interest is their only interest. They are often the only consistent adult in a child’s life and they stay with each case until the child is placed in a safe and permanent home.
