THE MISSION

The Superhero Fun Run believes in fostering children and teens with core values: honesty, respect, gratitude, uniqueness, positive attitude, persistence, and passion. Which can lift confidence, help with self respect, offer healthy exercise, meet new friends, and together we can build upon a better tomorrow in a child's life.

THE VALUE

The value in the Superhero Fun Run and Kid’s Walk is in the widely popularity of superheroes, comics, hero costumes, all ages, and the core message to always help others.

Heroes come in all shapes, sizes and age. One doesn't need a cape to touch the lives of others, but sometimes it can help, and it is fun to wear.

Be a superhero, be your own hero and together support music education in our Portland Public School District.

HELPING OUR HEROES

Superhero Fun Run and Kid’s Walk donates a set amount of free tickets to the Portland Public Schools, Boys and Girls Club, Bradley Angle House, P:ear, and other local organizations that help children, teens, families, etc.

THE BENEFICIARY

Portland Public School District

501 N Dixon St, Portland, OR 97227
(503) 916-2000

Portland Public Schools (PPS) is a public school district located in Portland, Oregon, United States. It is the largest school district in the state of Oregon, and in the Pacific Northwest. It is a Pre K-12 district with an enrollment of approximately 47,000 students. About 85 schools and 50 special needs sites are maintained within the district.

The Portland Public Schools enrolls 84% of the city's available school-age children. Nonetheless, total school enrollment is declining, accompanying a change in Portland's demographics. As a result, the Portland Public Schools are facing increasing budget pressure.

In the 2009 school year, the district had 1706 students classified as homeless by the Department of Education, or 3.8% of students in the district.
