Run, Walk or Stroller Roll to Help Abused Children
Every child needs a hero, but abused children need SuperHeroes. Make a difference in the life of an abused or neglected child today by participating in the 2nd Annual SuperHero 5K, Walk & Stroller Roll benefiting Guardian ad Litem (GAL) Foundation of Tampa Bay. This event will raise community awareness of the 3,000 children in Pinellas and Pasco 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 event will be held on Saturday, October 15, along the beautiful Safety Harbor Waterfront.
Want to Do More?
Just like SuperHeroes, our kids wear uniforms too! Many of our children need assistance throughout the year with clothing and items for school, so at this year’s run, we will also be collecting new and gently used school uniforms in a variety of sizes and colors. We hope to see you on Saturday, October 15 in your favorite SuperHero uniform and we hope you consider bringing an extra change of clothes to support our children all year long!
