It’s fun to have this blog and share my personal thoughts, humorous stories, host giveaways, and connect with people around the world. It’s also a privilege, because I can use this space to spread the word about important causes.
Such is the case today. I’m pleased to tell you about the Super Run!
What is Super Run?
The Super Run is a super hero themed family fun run. That’s right, put on your best super hero outfit and run for charities and fun!
The Super Run partners with local charities to raise awareness and funds. It acts as a platform to raise awareness and funds at one big event for multiple charities, as opposed to runs that raise funds for a single charity. The Super Run joins charities together at their events to the charities can all benefit from the event. Runners/supporters don’t have to choose between different races (as many people can’t afford several races), but can attend one fun event and support multiple causes at a time.

The Super Run takes place all across the country, but is coming to Michigan, my state, for 2 dates this September. On September 6, the Super Run takes place in Ann Arbor at Gallup Park. The host charity is the Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, who seek out every day superheros for more than 13,000 foster children in Michigan. They are supported by partner charities American Association for Cancer Research and Children’s Hospitals National Foundation. On September 27, the Super Run takes off in Lansing at Hawk Island Park. For more information about these dates, or to find a Super Run near you, visit them on the web at www.TheSuperRun.com.
