FAIRMONT -

The Gateway Connector was full of superheroes fighting for a good cause Saturday morning.

Court Appointed Special Advocates in Fairmont held a Superhero 5K.

Runners were encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero when running the race.

Organizers said they wanted to highlight how important their work is to the kids they serve.

"We've all come together to bring together a league of superheroes to run for abused and neglected children that we advocate for, because every child need a hero, but children that are abused need a superhero," said CASA's Melissa Garcia Webb.

The event also featured a fun run and carnival for kids who didn't join the main event.
