As you may know, I serve on the Board of Directors of a nonprofit called CASA Minnesota.  This year, CASA Minnesota is a participating charity for the 2012 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon.  General registration for the race is closed, but CASA Minnesota has a limited number of late registration entry codes available!  Runners that sign up to raise a minimum of $350 in donations for CASA Minnesota are eligible to obtain a late registration code.

If you or someone you know missed the general registration for the marathon and are interested in fundraising, please reply by email directly to Kelly Hudick at for more information.  I would also greatly appreciate if you would help me spread the word that we have late registration entries available by forwarding this email to your runner friends and family.

CASA Minnesota is committed to ensuring every abused or neglected child can be safe, establish permanence, and have the opportunity to thrive within a stable environment.  Participation in the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon program will help spread the word about CASA Minnesota and the work of our volunteers.  Our goal is to help raise more than $5,000 through the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon charity program in 2012.

Thank you so much!



  1. Hello –

    I am the Publisher of SAY Magazine, the largest lifestyle magazine in the world for Native people. Do you have any specific programs geared toward Native Americans?
    Respectfully, Leslie

  2. Leslie, Congratulations on a very impressive publication. Kids At Risk Action is primarily myself writing and speaking to the issues of abused and neglected children.

    As a CASA volunteer I have worked with ICWA and appreciate the issues and the community of people trying to improve the lives of at risk native children. I have become aware of the Milwaukee model called “wrap around” that looks to be a very promising approach to better outcomes.

    I would be pleased to connect with you to bring attention to the issues of abused and neglected children within the Native American community.
