Virtual Run for CASA

We're running to give a voice to an abused or neglected child.

The Criss-Cross Virtual Challenge celebrates the state of Illinois. It’s a 25-week virtual event stretching from November 5, 2020 to May 1, 2021. SOLO entrants or TEAMS of up to 10 people virtually run and walk the west-to-east width of the state of Illinois (224 miles), the north-south length of the state (435 miles), or both ways, aka “The Double” (659 miles). SOLO entrants and TEAM captains post their runs/walks on the interactive virtual challenge results platform, where they can see their progress/team’s progress on the Leaderboard. The map is Google-enabled.

Please join us in running to give a child a voice. CASA's goal is to raise $1,200 to sponsor a child's advocacy for an entire year right here in Champaign County. 

View CASA's Page

In this system, every charity has a “Team.” Every runner has a “page.” When you register, you can decide for your page to be part of CASA’s team.

  • If you have already registered, you can log in and go into your fundraising page and click “preferred charity: CASA” so donations made to your page will go to CASA’s team.

  • Runners can edit their pages by adding a profile picture, change what their fundraising goal is, saying they are running with the Champaign Republican Women, etc. I have some example scripts on the back page of this pdf.

  • Runners will then share their UNIQUE page link on social media, with friends, etc. Donors will click that link so they can support that individual’s goal.

  • Charities receive the donor’s information if the donor chooses to share it with us. Neither Race Roster nor CASA receives any payment information, and the forms are secure.

Thank you for running for CASA!!!
