Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Thank you. Thank you very much, Councilman Henon, for all of your help and support, and I want to thank the City Council for recognizing the important work that CASA and our CASA volunteers do every day on behalf of the City's abused children. We are very honored to be here today, really excited to talk about our first-ever Annual Superhero 5K Walk at the Philadelphia Zoo on Sunday.

We believe at CASA that every child needs a hero, but children who have been abused need a superhero, and that's exactly what our CASA volunteers do every day, our CASA staff, our Board of Directors, our supporters, every day acting as superheroes on behalf of these children, providing them with one-on-one advocacy and support. And the impact cannot be overstated. These are literally superheroes, and we hope that you guys can dust off your superhero capes -- we know everyone has one in the back of their closet -- join us at the Zoo on Sunday. I think Councilman Greenlee is a secret superhero. Maybe not so secret.

I would love to see you at the Zoo this Sunday, 8 o'clock. And if you can't make it this year, we'll be there next year too, October 11th. So put it on your calendar now.

Thank you very much for your support.
