About This Event:
Grab your sidekick and super hero cape and get ready for the 6th annual Super Hero 5K Run/Walk which supports (KCAN) Kalamazoo Child Abuse and Neglect Council. KCAN works together with the community to prevent child abuse and neglect in Kalamazoo County. All ages are welcome to this family-friendly event. This is a professionally timed event. Paid online registrants for the 1K will receive a medal, t-shirts will be available at a cost. All 5K registrants will receive a t-shirt, Mac Sport's timing bib and a goodie bag. Games, snacks, mascots and photo opportunities galore. 

All proceeds will support KCAN's programs, including Kids are Special, which is a sexual abuse prevention program for elementary-aged children, and mandated reporter training which is an education program to teach professionals who work with children how to identify and report abuse and neglect, and more.
