This year’s Superhero 5k Run for Prevention will be virtual, but will still include all the fun from a distance. Grab your cape or your mask, post a picture on our social media pages (FacebookInstagramTwitter, LinkedIn!) OR send us an email telling us you completed the run. You can post your route, your costume, your time, anything and everything you like to show you joined us. You have until October 31 at 5:00 to complete your run or walk and let us know.

Everyone who registers before September 25 will receive a tech-tee and a Festival-in-a-Box shipped to your door with items you need to have your own Superhero Run/Walk and Festival. Expect fun family activities, community resources, and some exciting surprises. If you register after September 25 you will need to pick up your items at the Child Guidance Havertown headquarters. Awards will be given for best costume, most steps, top fundraising team, biggest fundraising team, and more, over Facebook Live at 1:00pm on November 1, 2020!

Our prevention theme is especially relevant this year. The isolation, worry, and anxiety triggered by the pandemic have contributed to an increase in drug and alcohol misuse and abuse. These circumstances are having a devastating impact on children and families as a whole. The Superhero Run & Wellness Festival offers families prevention skills, builds awareness of substance abuse, and shares resources. All proceeds support families struggling with addiction and mental health in the Delaware Valley. Click here to register!
