The best part of all of this is that 100% of the proceeds from the Superhero Dash support the mission of the Athens CASA/GAL Program. Athens CASA recruits and trains community volunteers to support children that have been the victims of abuse and neglect as they navigate the juvenile court and child protection systems. A CASA Volunteer is first and foremost an advocate for the child's best interests, but often becomes a friendly, comforting face in a time of turmoil. A CASA Volunteer gives the child a voice.
