    Join us for C.A.S.A. of San Bernardino County's 13th Annual Heart of a Hero Run & Mentoring Resource Fair!.

    For the last 13 years, C.A.S.A. has hosted this event in recognition of April as Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month, because we want to get the community involved in helping us solve a very real problem in our County.  Currently we have over 230 high-need-high-risk foster youth on our waitlist, anxiously awaiting a caring adult to mentor and advocate for their best interests. Our goal for 2020 is to recruit 100 new volunteers to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates for foster children in communities throughout San Bernardino County.  Your participation in our Heart of a Hero Run will help change a youth’s life, because every dollar raised goes toward the recruitment of new volunteers to help us reach our goal.  You have the Heart of a Hero! Show it by registering today!

    THE RUN

    Enjoy great views of the scenic California State University, San Bernardino campus as your run/walk our 5k course.  Water stations will be placed throughout for your convenience and comfort. 

    THE MENTORING FAIR & FUN ZONE

    After you cross the finish line, visit our Mentoring Resource Fair and Fun Zone. Grab some water, and cool down while you learn about all of the amazing opportunities in our community to make a difference in a young person's life, including becoming a C.A.S.A. After you’ve learned about all the good you can do, dive into the fun! There’s fun for all ages with carnival games, inflatables, and much more!

    THE FIRST 300 REGISTRANTS WILL RECEIVE LIGHT BREAKFAST REFRESHMENTS, LUNCH FROM IN-N-OUT & A GIVEAWAY.

    WEAR YOUR BEST SUPERHERO GEAR TO RECEIVE A COMPLIMENTARY RAFFLE TICKET AND FOR A CHANCE TO WIN THE COSTUME CONTEST

    Registration opens at 8:30am.

    Run starts at 9:30am.

    Please come and join us for a fun and family friendly day! Even if you choose not to participate in the 5k, there’s something for everyone at this event! We hope to see you there!

    LOOKING FOR MORE WAYS TO HELP?

    START A FUNDRAISER

    You can create your own fundraising page for C.A.S.A. during checkout, just choose the ‘Become A Fundraiser’ tab, set a goal, and write a description for why C.A.S.A. matters to you. If you need some information to make your story impactful, feel free to use this sample blurb below!

    In San Bernardino County, over 5,000 children live in foster care. Those children were not only abused and neglected but as a result, removed from their homes and families for their own safety. Sadly, many become lost, confused, sad, angry, depressed, and feel isolated and alone.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.  Every day CASA volunteers make a difference in the lives of hundreds of youth by being there for the tough days, the not so good days, the in-between days, and the good days.

    If not you, who? If not together, how? If not now, when?

    CLIMB FOR A CAUSE

    For an additional $5 per registrant you and your team can enjoy taking on 34' high, 1,000 square foot climbing wall or ropes course that can reach as high as 45ft from the ground. You’re ready for this challenge!

    *Ages 14 and under not allowed on ropes course!

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
