Dear Friends of CASA Minnesota:

 We are proud to announce that, for the second year in a row, CASA Minnesota is a participating charity in the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon on October 6, 2013.  We are reaching out to runners and supporters to fundraise for Team CASA Minnesota.  Our goal is to raise more than $8,000 and we need your help!

CASA Minnesota is a local nonprofit whose mission is to support and promote volunteer advocates to ensure that every abused and neglected child in Minnesota has a safe, stable and permanent family. Our advocates are everyday citizens who become extraordinary volunteers.

  Why should you join our fundraising team?

 If you have not already registered for the marathon, you can receive a code entitling you to FREE race registration if you commit to raising at least $350!   Even if you are already registered, everyone who joins Team CASA Minnesota can earn free stuff!

  • Individuals raising at least $500 by August 31st will receive a CASA Minnesota technical t-shirt to wear on race day!
  • Individuals raising at least $1000 will receive the CASA Minnesota technical t-shirt PLUS two tickets to the CASA Minnesota Fall Fundraiser – a wine tasting event held in November 2013 ($50 value per ticket).

How do I sign up?

  1. Visit Team CASA Minnesota and click the “Fundraiser for This Campaign” button on the right. If you’re not already signed up on Crowdrise, you’ll be prompted to sign up. The entire process will take about a minute and you’ll be a part of our team.
