Unusual Year – Unusual Superhero

Unusual Year – Unusual Superhero

We have an unusual superhero for an unusual year and invite you to come out of your shell and be…

Generation G!

This year due to COVID-19 we are holding this event virtually. The good news is that you can join and show your support and acceptance from wherever you are! Put on the amazing 2020 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed event shirt or your favorite superhero costume and walk, run, or dash through your neighborhood, favorite park, or city. While we will miss seeing all of you at the park, this is a fabulous opportunity for you to help bring awareness and understanding to your favorite stomping grounds. The event shirts and/or superhero costumes are great conversation starters!
