Roundup Fellowship will host Be A Superhero 5K Run/Walk & Roll at America the Beautiful Park on Saturday, October 27.

This fall one hundred caring people will come together as a league of superheroes – including family members, friends, professionals, and community and business leaders – to help make a difference in the lives of developmentally disabled children and adults and to increase awareness of the challenges they face on a daily basis.

Become part of the movement to raise funds and awareness for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Form a team, come out with your family or run/walk alone.
