Welcome to my CASA Kid Walk page. This is my first year on a Kid Walk team. I just joined the board, and I am so honored to be part of an organization that does such incredible work. The Kid Walk is an annual event put on by CASA. Teams compete to see who can raise the most money between now and the Kid Walk on October 13th. I am part of the Racing Snails, and our goal is to raise $1,000 dollars.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. We recruit, rigorously train, and support community volunteers who are advocating for abused and neglected children. When children are removed from their homes by Child Welfare Services due to abuse or neglect, they become part of an overburdened system. Lawyers, social workers, and foster parents have serveral cases and kids competing for their time and attention. A CASA get to focus on just one child.
If you don't have the time to be a CASA, the second best thing you can do is donate. Make it possible for others to become CASAs. Only 2 in 4 children who need a CASA get a CASA. Help us expand our training schedule, grow our support system, and increase volunteer advocate pool. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. No bake sales, no candle orders, no raffle tickets. It is the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
If you don't feel comfortable donating online, you can send a check to:

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
