CASA of Allegheny County engages with community volunteers to defend and support neglected children in our region. These Superheroes stand up for the rights of abused children in a way no one else can. Every spring, we hold our annual Superhero Run and Fun Walk in which nearly 1,400 caped, and non-caped, crusaders take the streets to raise the necessary funds to provide training, technical assistance and continuous quality improvement services for those who are protecting our children.
