Here is a Volunteer Opportunity suggested by one of our members!

It’s that time again! GO SUPERHEROS! On Saturday, May 5th Big Country CASA will host our Second Annual Superhero 5K/1K Fun Run! This family-friendly event was held for the first time in Abilene last May, with more than 450 runners and almost 600 total people in attendance! Many of you were threre. The goal of the Fun Run is to increase awareness on the issue of child abuse and neglect in our community, raise support for Big Country CASA operations, and specifically, to educate the public on the mission of Big Country CASA to recruit more volunteers who will work with with us as we serve the foster children of Taylor County. You don’t have to be a runner to participate, but if you are, then do! We’re also looking for volunteers to help in various areas during the race, and sponsors for our event. If you or a friend or family member have a business that you think might like to partner with us as a sponsor, please reply to this email and let me know. I’ve attached a flier providing information about the event, as well as a Fun Run Sponsor Packet showing the various sponsorship levels. There is a separate sponsor form to fill out which will provide us with all of the information we’ll need to follow up! Feel free forward this email to them, print the materials and hand deliver them, or stop by the office and we’ll print some for you. Our goal is to raise $50,000 this year and it comes from our generous sponsors, so please help us if you can! If you’d like to volunteer to help during the event, please reply and let me know that too and I’ll add your name to our list. Thanks a million for all that you already do to help us help these precious children who need it most.
“Every child needs a hero, but abused children need SUPERHEROES!”
