Superhero 5k Cancelled due to COVID-19

Hello CASA 5K Supporters,

We wanted to take a moment to say thank you for being a supporter of our Annual Superhero 5K Run/Walk. During these unprecedented times, we are sad to inform you that this year’s 5K is canceled due to the coronavirus.

As you can imagine, we at CASA are actively working to meet the needs of the children we serve every day, especially during this crisis. As we rely on our annual 5K to raise funds for our yearly budget, we’d like to ask you to donate your registration this year. If you have not yet registered for the 5k, we’d like to ask you to consider donating the cost of registration by clicking the link below.

While we can’t convene for our Superhero 5K next month, all of our CASA staff and advocates are busy being Superheroes during this time of crisis for all of the children and youth that we serve.  We’re using video conferencing apps to connect with all of our CASA kids weekly to maintain some sense of consistency and stability for them, assessing their safety and any needs or challenges that they and their caregivers are facing in the wake of the COVID-19.

During this time, CASA has been able to ensure that the basic needs of children, families, and youth are met by providing gift cards for food, transportation, diapers, wipes, formula, cleaning products, and electronic devices for remote learning activities. 

At CASA, we rely on our annual 5K for needed funds for our yearly budget, the donation of your registration cost will help us provide critical services at this even more critical time in all of our lives. Your donation will directly impact the work we are doing to ensure the kids we serve are staying safe and protected during this pandemic.

Although we are not able to meet at Ridley Creek State Park on Sunday, April 26th, we will be hosting a virtual 5K that day on social media.  Please join us as we take to the streets and sidewalks near our homes, to walk or run!  We hope you bought or made those superhero costumes in anticipation of our event because we are hosting an online costume contest with prizes! Follow us on Facebook @CASAYouthAdvocates for more details. 

We are wishing you safety and health – and we look forward to seeing you at our next CASA event!

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
