From a salon makeover with 12-year-old Chylean, to candy making with 14 year old Lenny, to the race track with 18-year-old Ricky.

Our Adopt Lehigh Valley Kids have been a lot of places, but all want to end up in a permanent home.

To get there a foster family is key and with May being National Foster Care Month, those parents are being celebrated as superheroes.

"Especially during this crisis they really are heroes," said outreach coordinator Angie Gillen.

The Salvation Army's foster care and adoption program is starting the Superhero Challenge.

"The SuperHero Challenge is to show them we appreciate them and to stand by, and gives us all a chance to be superheroes as well," Gillen said.

There are six different components, with the first being a virtual Rock N' Run, replacing the program's biggest fundraiser that is canceled due to the coronavirus.

Donors can sign up for a 5 or 10k or a fun run with your kids, and then do the run on your own.

"Post some sort of pic of the completion of the run and get creative and hashtag it Superhero Challenge," Gillen said.

You can also become a superfriend.

"It's cool because you get your own webpage and can ask for donations," she said.

There's also an online auction and people are encouraged to highlight random acts of kindness.

Which 14-year-old Charlie told us last fall during a day with a local fire company, that he's already set to do.

"You want to be a fireman?" I asked while he was in full fireman gear.

"Yes. They protect and serve and I can do something to save someone's life," he said.

You can also offer your home to a kid in need. Head to the Salvation Army Children Services Facebook page for more ways to show support.
