Super Saturday: Wisconsin Community Bank Hosts Superhero 5k

“Superheroes unite!” was the shout that went up from the crowd for Community State Bank’s 3rd Annual Super Saturday Superhero 5k, part of a local celebration in Union Grove, WI known as “Super Saturday.” On Saturday, Sept. 6, 2014, nearly 150 runners and volunteers walked and ran up and down the historic streets of Union Grove.

This family friendly event is designed to bring local businesses together in a unique way, and draw interest from individuals who might not be familiar with Union Grove.  The race was presented by Community State Bank but also featured donations and sponsorship efforts from other local businesses. All proceeds from the event were donated back to Super Saturday for the promotion and expansion of the community event.
