Run TrackTown 5K Benefiting CASA
Saturday, May 9, 2015
The run started from 15th Ave and Agate and finished on the track at historic Hayward Field amidst the celebration of Marathon weekend festivities. And, of course, CASA champion capes were flying!
Meet Ashton & Brianne, Honorary Chairs
Thank you to our returning honorary chairs Ashton Eaton and Brianne Theisen-Eaton. Ashton Eaton, American decathlete and Olympic champion, who holds the world record in both the decathlon and indoor heptathlon and his wife, Brianne Theisen-Eaton, Canadian track and field Olympian and heptathlon silver medalist at the 2013 World Championships will be cheering on the runners on race day!
We asked Ashton and Brianne to tell us why they choose to support CASA:
“As Ashton and I have gotten older, we’ve done a lot of reflecting upon our childhoods. We are so fortunate to be able to wake up everyday and do something that we love, and we know that we didn’t get here on our own. As kids and young adults, we had many people; parents, teachers, mentors, helping and challenging us along the way. We understand how crucial this time is and hope that it’s something all children can experience.
Ashton and I have always loved working with kids, and seeing those that have benefitted from this program with huge smiles on their faces is extremely rewarding. These kids need a voice, and you can help them by donating to CASA, running or being a virtual runner in their annual 5k, or volunteering to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a child.” – Briane Theisen Eaton
