Superhero fun run raises awareness for child abuse

They may not be flying through the sky, or saving people from burning buildings, but these heroically clad individuals are making a difference.

Around 200 participants, donning their best superhero attire, gather for the 4th annual Superhero Fun Run.

Sponsored by Capstone, the event is designed to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse and neglect, in a light–hearted manner.

"So this is just a fun way for people to get involved and be aware that we do have an issue here in our area with child abuse and neglect," says local police officer and event coordinator, Henry Moreno.

The Anderson family say they're participating in today's fun run because it's for a great cause.

Karen Anderson says her daughters planned ahead this year, by designing matching Superman costumes, complete with boots and capes.

"They really got into this year and it's for a great cause because abused children need to be taken care of.  so we want to step forward and help the community," says Anderson.

Capstone Child Advocacy Center aims to provide a panhandle–wide, coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to the problems of child victimization.
