Get ready for CASA of Texarkana’s 5th Annual 5k Colorful Run on Saturday, September 23 at Trinity Baptist Church located at Loop 245 and Trinity Boulevard in Texarkana, AR.

According to a press release, CASA is delighted to add “Run as Your Favorite Super Hero” to the annual family fun event.  The new twist came from the idea that every one of our children needs a Hero, but abused and neglected children need Super Heroes.

Join in the excitement and fun of a color powder 5K at Trinity Baptist Church’s cross-country track and come dressed as your favorite Super Hero.  There will be an opportunity to get your child’s photo taken with our Super Heroes that are real advocates for abused children.

Register online for the race at www.runsignup.com/casacolorful5k or at www.casatexarkana.org/colorful5K. The day of the event, late registration will begin at 8AM. A children’s fun run will be at 8:30AM (ages 5-12). CASA is thrilled again this year to have Anytime Fitness helping with the children’s race. The regular race will follow at 9AM.  All along the route participants will be puffed with non-toxic colored powder with music, lots of enthusiasm and many other activities.  Some activities during the morning event will include, a bounce house, washable tattoos, a magician making balloon characters, snow cones, food from Super 1 Foods, yogurt tasting from Orange Leaf and samples from Small Cakes cupcakes.

The run is dedicated to Amanda Fussell Woodman for her many years of tireless dedication to CASA and its’ programs for the abused and neglected children in our community who are unable to speak for themselves. This fun event was one that Amanda envisioned as she continued her quest in the pursuit to end child abuse.
