Annual SuperHero 5K

Make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child today by participating in the 5th 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.

The family-friendly, all ages and abilities event will be held on Saturday, October 12, starting and ending at Safety Harbor Municipal Marina located at 110 Veterans Memorial Lane in Safety Harbor.

Superhero costumes are encouraged but not required. The race course will run along the beautiful Safety Harbor waterfront. We will kick off the Superhero 5K at 8:30am with carnival activities afterwards for runners and families. Awards will be given for top qualifiers of the 5K Run and for best costumes both animal and canine! Snacks and water will also be provided.

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 Volunteer Child Advocates (VCA) and the children they serve. In Pinellas and Pasco County, there are currently 3,187 children in foster care and 163 more come into care on average each month. Volunteer Child Advocates 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.
