Superhero run raises awareness about child abuse

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Caped crusa​ders and superheroes big and small joined forces to raise awareness about child abuse in Henrico County Saturday.

More than 500 runners registered for the 10th annual CASA Superhero Run and 5K, which kicked off at 9:30 a.m. at St. Joseph's Villa.

Hundreds of caring people will come together as a league of superheroes -- including family members, friends, professionals, and community and business leaders -- to help make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children and to increase awareness of the challenges they face on a daily basis.

The event benefited Henrico's and Chesterfield's Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), which advocates for and neglected children in the juvenile justice system.

WTVR CBS 6 anchor and reporter Greg McQuade returned as emcee.

McQuade said some of the more popular Super Hero costumes were The Incredible Hulk, Batman and Wonder Woman.
