This year the fair takes to the trails virtually.
All event proceeds directly support families struggling with addiction and mental health in the five-county Philadelphia area.
The prevention theme, “One Stride at a Time” is especially relevant this year. Isolation, worry and anxiety triggered by the pandemic have contributed to an increase in drug and alcohol misuse.
These circumstances have a devastating impact on children and families as a whole.
The Superhero Run & Wellness Festival offers families prevention skills, builds awareness of substance abuse, and shares resources.
Although we will be apart, we will be spreading Superhero energy everywhere!
Register for the virtual race at https://bit.ly/CGRC5K.
Grab your cape or mask (or just your T-shirt) and post a picture on our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn), or send an email telling us you completed the run.
You can post your route, your costume, your time, anything and everything you like. Then, you’re officially part of the Superhero team! You have until Oct. 31, at 5 p.m., to complete your run or walk and let us know.
All participants will receive a tech-tee and a Festival-in-a-Box with all items you need to have your own Superhero Run/Walk and Festival.
Your special box will include fun family activities, community resources, and some exciting surprises.
