About This Activity

Join us Saturday, October 3rd at the Philadelphia Zoo for a fun day of Superhero activities on behalf of Philadelphia's most vulnerable children.

Registration starts at 7:30am. Get to the zoo bright and early to pick up your registration packets, participate in superhero activities like face painting, arts & crafts, photo booth and warm-up exercises! 

Run/Walk kicks off at 8:15am

  • The fast-as-lightening superheroes registered to run the 5K will start first. The 5K track is 2 loops through the zoo (say hi to the animals as you wiz by!) and 1 loop around the outside of the zoo. 
  • Superhero kids running the 1K will line up behind the 5K runners. They will do 1 loop through the zoo (surrounded by all of the animals waking up for the day!)
  • Superheroes not interested in running can walk the 1K loop through the zoo at their own pace. 

All this Superhero activity before the zoo opens to the general public! 

What a great way to support CASA Philadelphia's efforts on behalf of abused & neglected children. Spread the word! Invite your friends & family! We need you. 

  • $35/Adult 
  • $25/Child (children under 3 are free)
    • Day-of prices go up to $40/Adult, $30/Child


Create a Team! Form your own Justice League of America, because Batman is stronger with Robin. Creating a team is a good way for you to get people involved for a good cause! Follow the instructions on the registration page: Create a Team. Give your team a name. Send a link to your family & friends. It's that simple. Superhero Teams who raise $500 or more will receive a special CASA Superhero Cape for each team member to wear during the event!
