About this Virtual Run: Superhero Run Saves the World One Child at a Time! The Superhero Run welcomes cosplayers and runners of all ages and abilities (competitive, casual, enhanced, mutant or otherwise) to participate in the greatest cause this side of the multiverse: abused kids in need. Wearing a superhero or other costume of any kind is encouraged but not mandatory. Runners can choose to enter our 5K or our 1-mile fun run and each participant will earn this super 4″ medal. Superhero Run race proceeds will be used to help real-life superhero volunteers provide normalcy and comfort to children whose lives have been turned upside down by neglect, abuse and abandonment.
About the Charity: Friends of Children of Brevard County, Inc is a long standing charity that financially assists abused children who have been removed from their home due to unsafe conditions resulting from abuse, abandonment and/or neglect. Brevard County, FL has approximately 1,000 of these vulnerable children. Many of these children leave their home with very few personal possessions and are placed with a relative, family friend, or neighbor. These interim caregivers may not have the financial means to sufficiently provide for these children in a manner that provides normalcy. Those that are not placed with relatives or friends are placed in foster care or a group home where there is even less normalcy.
Virtual Strides Partner Event: This event is part of the Virtual Strides Partners Program. Friends of Children will receive 100% of the net proceeds from this event after Virtual Strides’ partner costs are deducted.
