HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Calling all superheroes!

Put on your Spandex and participate in the Third Annual National Children's Advocacy Center's Family Block Party.

This year's event is set for April 12 and will feature live music, food, a 5-K and a fun run. It is free and open to the public.

The goal this year is to raise $40,000 and since NCAC receives no federal funding, every little bit counts.

Director of Development Catherine Hereford said they rely on the community for financial support so they can provide services to children who have been victims of abuse. "We also provide prevention services for at-risk families and for kids in schools so they can keep themselves safe," she said.

For more information about how to register for the event, visit this web page.
