On Thursday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Melissa Pierce from CASA of the South Plains talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about CASA's upcoming 5K run.

The 7th annual CASA Superhero 5K run will take place this month. As the name implies, participants are encouraged to dress up as superheroes and run in the race. Kids are also welcome to join, and there will be a special 1K run for the children.

The Superhero 5K will take place Saturday, April 20th at Mackenzie Park. The Kids K run begins at 9:00 AM, and the 5K begins at 9:30 AM. Registration is $30 for adults, $15 for kids and $20 for Greek fraternity and sorority members.
