A group of eight area residents participated in the Superhero Half Marathon and Relay Sunday to benefit the Marfan Foundation in honor of a 7-year-old Madison girl.

Team Cassie has raised $52,086 this year for the foundation. Alix and Ezra Jennings formed the team five years ago for their daughter, Cassie, who has Marfan Syndrome, which affects the body's connective tissue.

To help Team Cassie, which has raised more than $200,000 over the past five years, visit the group's fundraising page.
