Support Your Favorite Cause
Running a 5K is a great way to keep up with your regular fitness goals, but that’s not why you choose to invest in The Super Run! You do it because it’s a super fun way to support local nonprofits and a great cause.
The 2017 Super Run is going to support a variety of nonprofit organizations who work in the local community to raise funding and awareness for great causes. Here are a couple that are on the list so far for The Super Run 2017.
Savvy Cyber Kids
This incredible organization works to bring attention to the need for cyber safety awareness for kids. By offering workshops in schools and local community centers, Savvy Cyber Kids keeps kids safe when they’re using the internet at home, in school, or on the go.
Superhero Training Academy
Kids can soak up all kinds of things by listening to heroic stories. That power can spark a lifelong journey to saving the planet, changing the world, or just changing themselves. That’s what kids learn from the Superhero Training Academy—how an ordinary person like Malala or Wonder Woman found creative power in a time of crisis—and how to access that power within themselves.
