Give! Superhero Adventure

Family Promise of Monroe County in partnership with the Sherman Theater, announces the first annual Superhero Adventure to benefit Family Promise on Sept. 2, 2017 during Stroudfest. This annual event features lots of live music, good food and plenty of fun.

Superhero Adventure invites adults, children and strollers of all ages, speeds and abilities – and well-behaved leashed dogs – to be a “Superhero” and help save homeless families with children by dressing up in a favorite superhero costume and walking among the vendors. The Adventure will start and end at the Family Promise kiosk on 7th Street. Registered Superheroes will collect “Superheroes for Family Promise” stickers at the volunteer Stroudfest vendor booths and cash them in for prizes. Other prizes include best costume and best-dressed dog.

Entrants who sign up online can also ask friends and relatives to sponsor them online. Those who raise $40 or more in sponsors will get a free T-shirt, and the person who raises the most for homeless families wins the grand prize. Find your inner Superhero and join the fight to end homelessness!
