BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - This week, the Bowling Green Police Department posted a Facebook video, challenging the Bowling Green Fire Department to suit up and join them in CASA’s Superhero 5K next weekend.

“The Bowling Green Police Department stands with CASA and their mission to provide support and intervention for abused and neglected children and our area. Our department will have many superheroes running in the 5k and want to challenge the Bowling Green Fire Department to do the same. Chief Brooks-- we asked you to bring your biggest group of superhero runners and pass this challenge on to others come out and help us change a child’s story,” said Major Matt Edwards with BGPD.

Since then, the fire department has challenged the Warren County Sheriff’s Office to join them.

The CASA of South Central Kentucky Superhero 5K, 1 Mile Kids Fun Run and 1 Mile Family Walk is set for September 25 at Ephram White Park.
