Superheroes for Kids is an annual, comic book-themed event that raises funds and awareness for Belle Children's Services of the St. Louis Arc. The Superhero characters - Walk, Talk, Read and Write - help to explain the Arc's children's services, but also make it more fun for the kids who are receiving therapies.
The event is made possible through the leadership and creativity of co-chairs Mary and David Steward II and through the generosity of World Wide Technology and Roar Comics.
Each year a "Superhero for Kids" award is presented to an individual for his or her dedication to improving the lives of children everywhere. Past honorees include: Barbara Stewart, Counselor and Founder of the Belle Center and Dr. John Constantino, Washington University professor of Child Psychiatry.
In February 2014, the Ladue News ran a cover story about the Superheroes for Kids event. Read all about it here!
