On Saturday, May 14th, CASA of South Central Kentucky held its annual Superhero 5K at Kereiakes Park in Bowling Green. We were happy to be the primary sponsor for this event, and had a great time taking part in all of the activities.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of South Central KY, Inc. is a non-profit agency dedicated to preventing and eliminating further trauma to children. Specifically, CASA works to prevent child victims of abuse, neglect and dependency from further abuse by providing trained community volunteers to advocate for them in the foster care and family court systems. The CASA concept is based on the commitment that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home as soon as possible.
Despite the cool conditions, the event was attended by a variety of participants (including numerous dressed as your favorite superhero’s), and provided the opportunity for loads of fun, all while raising money for a great cause. Here’s a few snapshots from the May 14th 5K:
We truly enjoyed ourselves and we can’t lie…we were rather proud of our committed cheetah’s! This organization is a tremendous partner and we can’t wait to continue to work with them over the upcoming months. This may be a bit biased, but we’re already looking forward to next year’s Superhero 5K!
Earlier this year, we were given the chance to partner with CASA to help raise funds. Thanks to our outstanding customers and steady stream of business, we were able to present them with a check totaling $1,750, equating to 2.5% of ALL sales through the month of April!
