Images From PCA’s Super Hero Run
The Newaygo County Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect held their first annual Super Hero Run featuring a 5k as well as a 1 mile fun run as part of Newayo’s Memorial Day Weekend activities.
A gorgeous Saturday morning greeted the runners at the high school and after a rousing a capella version of the Star Spangled Banner as a kick-off a stream of Caped Crusaders, Winged Warriors, Men (and Women) of Steel and even an occasional Peter Parker alter-ego took to the streets of Newaygo. With a police escort guiding the way for this cadre of crime-fighters the neighborhoods they passed never looked safer.
The theme fit well with the organization’s advocacy efforts since kids, particular the most vulnerable, all need a hero from time to time.
Proceeds from the event went to supporting the programs of the local group and for more information on NCPCA you can go to their website at: http://www.newaygocountyprevention.org/
