The latter will feature costumed racers, a superhero challenge, and over $5,000 worth of prizes.

After the race will be an award ceremony, a costume contest, and activities for kids.

A spokesperson with the organization said, "Superman was adopted, Spiderman was raised by his uncle, Batman grew up with his butler, Alfred, and later took in Robin to raise as his ward. Thor was kicked out of Asgard by his dad, but eventually reunified with his family. Few superheroes grow up in a typical family situation raised by their own parents, yet they all accomplished great things as adults. CASA, a nonprofit that advocates for children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect, believes all children deserve the chance to grow up happy and healthy and become superhero adults themselves."
