NORTHEAST MICHIGAN – We are in unprecedented times.
People are sick. Businesses and schools are closed. The world is scared. Everything is on pause. Sadly, statistics are showing crimes against children are on the rise. Children are more vulnerable than ever. They are isolated and living away from powerful support systems like schools, day cares and churches.
North Central Area Credit Union (NCACU) has partnered with Put On The Cape – A Foundation of Hope to host “Superhero September” for the last two years. “Each year we’ve grown a little and given more to support local child assessment centers in our region. We give them financial support as well as donations of Superhero themed clothing, toys and school supplies,” said NCACU Marketing Director, Tracy Wilson.
COVID-19 has made it impossible to host the Super Main Event like last year. But, the centers and the children still need support! So, this year, NCACU takes the mission VIRTUAL!
We ask our community to make a commitment to the children and register to run, walk or roll to support their child assessment centers while participating in physical fitness with a friend, family, or work team. Each registration price includes a donation to the center you choose.
Grab a partner! Enlist your family, create a work team, or go it alone! Have a fun run during NCACU’s Virtual Superhero Fun Run. See, when the event is virtual—you don’t have to impress anyone.
You get a participant medal and t-shirt (limited to the first 200 registrants) no matter the distance you run or how fast you go. This is all about a personal commitment and a donation to the center! Wear your favorite superhero t-shirt, dress-up your kids, mask the dog, and share some hope to uplift not only ourselves, but the children who desperately need us.
Tickets for the event will go “LIVE” on Sept. 1. Watch NCACU’s website, ncacu.org or their Facebook page facebook.com/ncacu for the registration link.
Our child victims still need heroes, and we need to feel normal again. Now, you can do both. Put on the cape. Let’s do this! Because hope is stronger than fear.
