ABOUT THE RUN
Since 2013, the Superhero Run has raised over $850,000 in Houston's battle against child abuse. Our annual 5K timed fun run/walk and kids 1K has quickly has become a signature event for Child Advocates.
We are currently in the planning stages for the 2021 Superhero Run. We hope that this year's event will be able to meet together at City Centre on October 16.
Child Advocates has been helping Houston's abused children since 1984.
“Those who say that we’re in a time when there are no heroes, they just don’t know where to look.”
– Ronald Reagan
Our advocate volunteers’ main job is to provide the court with recommendations about where the children they represent should live on a permanent basis. Throughout the case, our volunteers maintain contact with everyone involved in the children’s lives, from foster parents, biological parents and therapists to Child Protective Services caseworkers and attorneys appointed by the court. They make sure the children are receiving the medical and psychological help they need, and they meet with teachers and principals to help the children thrive in school. They dry tears and give hugs and throw birthday parties, too. Most importantly, they serve as a 'constant' person for the children to count on during this tumultuous time. Essentially, our volunteers do whatever it takes to ensure that the needs of the children are being met while they are in care.
“Superheroes and heroes come in all sizes and shapes. Unfortunately, so do kids who are abused or neglected. This event is important to MRE because we care. We don't just invest in growing our company -- we invest in our community. Plain as that.”
-Shane Merz, M.R.E. Consulting
