This isn’t the latest Marvel or DC Comics movie, but an installation-wide collaboration, as Specker Field House was filled with Batmen, Wonder Women and Captains Marvel for this year’s ACS Superhero Fun Run, Saturday. The event is Army Community Service’s observance of Child Abuse Prevention Month and Autism Awareness Month, and ACS received help from several units for the Fun Run.
“Since both programs are managed by Army Community Service, we collaborated to bring awareness to both issues, as well as build morale for the community and bring everyone together,” said Tanisha Grey, with the Fort Belvoir Family Advocacy Program.
Grey said this was a group effort. Fort Belvoir Fire Department helped with the bounce houses, 249th Engineering Battalion helped with setup, and CYS helped with face painting and other entertainment. “It’s really an installation-wide effort to make sure this is a success.”
After an hour of bouncing and running in the field house, everyone proceeded to Pullen Field and performed feats of super speed on the track.
