April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month. CASA held The Protecting Our Children Family Festival at Smith Elementary on Monday, April 2, 2012. Here are a few snapshots from that event. It also highlighted our upcoming Superhero themed Speak Up for Kids 5K Run/Walk, read more information about that below.
We also had a chance to update the 2011 Speak Up for Kids 5K PSA Video (check out this year’s PSA below!) to include the theme of this year’s Speak Up for Kids 5k – Super Hero!! “Every child needs a hero but it takes a Superhero to protect our children.” As I shared in the CASA of the Coastal Bend – 5K – Saturday, May 05, 2012 – Heritage Park, Corpus Christi, Texas, I’m proud to serve as the Secretary of CASA of the Coastal Bend. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASA volunteers serve as liaisons for children in the court system as they are placed in the unfortunate position of seeking a permanent home.
