CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County provides and promotes court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child can have the opportunity to thrive in a safe, nurturing and permanent home. Now is the time to get involved and support a better future for these children. Whether you are a competitive runner, a casual walker, or just love the idea of supporting a wonderful cause, participating in the CASA Superhero Run allows you to show your support for abused and neglected children in Montgomery County. NEW FOR 2018! Become a SUPERHERO by raising funds in support of CASA! In Montgomery County, it costs $1,500 to provide an Advocate for one child for one year. Currently, more than 9 children enter foster care in Montgomery County EACH WEEK. If every participant raised just $25, we would reach our goal of $10,000 which would provide almost 7 abused or neglected children with Advocates this year.
