Every child needs a hero but abused and neglected children need SuperHeroes.  Make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child today by participating in the 1st Annual SuperHero 5k and 1 mile fun run benefitting Advocates for Children, Inc., Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) of the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit.  This event will raise community awareness of the children in Bay, Washington, Holmes, Gulf, Calhoun and Jackson counties who have been removed from their homes by no fault of their own.  Monies raised will make a difference in the lives of children in foster care here in our local community.  The family friendly all ages and abilities will be held on Saturday, June 17, at Sheffield Park in Lynn Haven, Florida.

The fun will continue at Porter Park with the Lynn Haven Parks and Recreation Hermit Crab Festival.  Each of our age group winners will also get the chance to race their very own hermit crab!!!
