About the Event
Who is Melisha Gibson?
This event will give you a workout with a reward. By attending the Superhero 5K Run/Walk and Family Fun Festival you can help CASA of Bradley & Polk Counties reach more children in need of loving and permanent homes, as well as celebrate the advocates who have become superheroes in the community going out of their way to help children in need of a voice.
Melisha Morganna Gibson was four years old in October of 1976 when she died a tragic death by child abuse. The
community of Cleveland, Tennessee, was shocked and deeply saddened. The case immediately gained national attention and within months the child abuse laws in the State of Tennessee and the rest of the nation changed. 
Come join CASA of Bradley and Polk Counties for the Superhero 5K Run/Walk and Family Fun Festival in memory of Melisha Gibson! Superhero costumes are welcomed and encouraged at this family-friendly event. A 1 mile walk and 5K for all ages will kickstart the morning, followed by a Family Fun Festival for everyone!
