The 6th Annual CASA Superhero Run is going virtual in 2020 due to COVID-19. This means that you can participate in multiple ways (see below) from anywhere on the planet during race weekend. CASA's mission is all about the best interest and safety of kids. We're excited to be able to continue the CASA Superhero Run tradition in Lynchburg while ensuring that children, families, and runners can participate in a safe way. Walk, run, or raise money for CASA and you can be a real-life superhero to some very special children right here in your community.
