teleNetwork has been sponsoring the CASA Superhero Run and bringing a large team to this annual event since 2009, and they are growing to be an even bigger superhero for CASA kids every single year. In 2009, they made a $500 sponsorship as a company, but they also paid for more than 50 of their employees to register to run in the race.
Over the years they’ve competed successfully for largest team and supported the race as a sponsor whenever possible, but for 2013, teleNetwork soared up, up and away as they became a $5,000 sponsor through some very creative means. Amber Honeycutt, a training supervisor at teleNetwork, led this year’s efforts. “In previous years we’ve come up just short of a sponsorship, so this year I went to the executives to see if they would match whatever the employees could collect in donations and they agreed to...

Rogue Running is a pretty big superhero for kids in the greater Austin community. For the past 4 years as they have served as the official running sponsor for the CASA Superhero Run, supporting our annual event that raises crucial funds and awareness to help children who’ve been abused or neglected. But their superhero qualities don’t just stem from their support for this event.
You may not know that there is a superhero named Rogue. She comes from the Marvel Comics universe and is most commonly known as a member of the X-Men team of mutant superheroes. She is most easily recognized by the iconic white streaks in her otherwise dark hair and was played by Anna Paquin in the most recent X-Men movies. Read more< Read More

Even heroes need a hiatus, and that is exactly how CASA Staff Olympics came about! CASA Staff Olympics is an annual staff team-building event that was held this summer at an awesome venue, Grace Covenant Church! The spirit behind CASA Staff Olympics is to create an opportunity for members of our staff, who do serious and challenging work on a daily basis, to hang loose and have fun! The staff was divided into several teams, and each team chose a team name and team captain. The teams raced each other in a wacky obstacle course that involved hula hoops, skipping, competitive Play-Doh sculpting, and balloon waddling backwards (just to name a few). It was tons of fun to be silly and see everyone get to unleash their inner child!
One of the stations that I particularly enjoyed required the whole team to get two hula hoops around each of their bodies while holding hands. The task seemed as though it could be time consuming at first, but each team on the CASA staff strategized and found unique ways to complete the hula hoop challenge within seconds! This reminded me of how CASA goes above and beyond in every aspect... Read more< Read More
