"Superheroes is exactly what CAPstone represents;" Community runs to fight child abuse

Posted: Updated:
It looked like a scene from a mega-super hero movie, with Batman, Superman, Flash, and the Incredible Hulk all running together to save the world. 

Today, that world-saving came in the form of fighting against child abuse. 

The CAPstone Super Hero run raises money for the Child Advocacy Center that provides services to children in the community that have been abused or neglected.
 
"Per capita, Scotts Bluff County has the third highest rate of child abuse and neglect intakes in the state of Nebraska," Said CAPstone Executive Director Holly Brandt.

Brandt says Capstone helped nearly 350 kids last year.
 
"Superheroes is exactly what CAPstone represents," said CAPstone Chair Brian Wasson. "These influential people, professional people that enter these children's lives when they need it at a very vulnerable time."
 
This is the fifth year CAPstone has hosted the Superhero run, and Brandt says it couldn't have happened without the support of the community and sponsors.

Brandt says the Child Advocacy Center is always looking for donations or volunteers fro anyone who would like to help.
