Your fundraising helps recruit, train and support CASA volunteers and provides the professional staff and resources they need to advocate powerfully for the most vulnerable children in our community.
You can form a team to fundraise together (see the Capes for CASA Team fundraising competitions below) and/or raise funds on your own for individual fundraising prizes (scroll down to see the swag!)
First step: register yourself and/or set up your team
The first step is to register yourself for your chosen event – 5K or 10K (in-person, timed trail runs or virtual options are available), and/or Children’s Trail of Treats and Fall Festival – set up your team if you will be the team captain, or join a team that has already been established. Register here and then come back to download the Superhero’s Guide to Fundraising and the Team Captain Toolkit for tons of great tips, resources and suggestions to help you SOAR above the rest!

Suggested Subject: Superheroes… Capes or no capes? I need to know what you think…
Hi Super Friend,
In the Incredibles, Edna Mode insists that superheroes shouldn’t wear capes, and lists several heroes whose capes ended their careers prematurely. But trying telling that to Batman or Superman… So, now I’m stuck! Cape or no cape?
Let me back up for a minute and explain my dilemma. This fall, I’ll be transforming into [YOUR SUPERHERO] as part of the 2021 CASA Superhero Run, Children’s Trail of Treats and Fall Festival! This will be fun, but I’m doing it for a more important reason, one that I hope you will help me with.
CASA speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as Advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. CASA volunteers take the time to get to know all parts of a child’s life. They ensure that each child’s individual needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system.
I’m setting a goal to raise [$YOUR GOAL] to help support CASA in this cause. Will you help me be a SUPERHERO by donating today at [YOUR PERSONAL FUNDRAISING LINK]?
And let me know your thoughts on a cape…
P.S. You are also welcome to join me at https://bit.ly/2021_CASA_Supehero_Run_Fall_Festival. Run or walk in-person or virtually (or do ZERO and still be a hero in the Hero ZeroK,) come out for family fun at the Children’s Trail of Treats and Fall Festival, AND become a Super Fundraiser!
If I learned anything from superheroes, it’s that “with great power comes great responsibility.” I’m using my great power to help children who have been abused or neglected. Will you be my trusty sidekick for the 2021 CASA Superhero Run and Fall Festival and make a donation to my personal fundraising page? #casasuperherorun2021 – Link to your personal fundraising page
Avengers Assemble! I’m fighting to be a force for good through the CASA Superhero Run and Fall Festival, which is coming up on October 30th. Though my superpowers are mighty, I need the help of other heroes to accomplish this mission. Donate to my fundraising efforts and our combined powers can help children who have been abused or neglected! #casasuperherorun2021 – Link to your personal fundraising page
Just like T’Challa says, we must work to be an example of how we, as brothers and sisters on this earth, should treat each other. Let’s take a lesson from Black Panther and combine superpowers during the 2020 CASA Superhero Run and Fall Festival to help children who’ve been abused or neglected. Please donate to help me meet my fundraising goal! #casasuperherorun2021 – Link to your personal fundraising page
