Join honorary chairs Ashton Eaton and Brianne Theisen-Eaton for this beautiful 6K run and walk, 2 mile untimed walk and 400 meter Kids’ Run along the river. Register either as a runner/walker or as a virtual runner and you will represent one of the 702 children in need of a CASA volunteer. Help to ensure that every child is represented!
Purchase one of our red Champion Capes to show your inner champion! You also have the opportunity to win the Team Spirit Award or go the extra mile for kids to be named Top Fundraiser.

Registration: Click here or on the link below for online registration, or click here for a printable registration form. Have your entry fee waived when you raise at least $50 with a personal fundraising page using our easy online fundraising site. Each person who donates on your fundraising page gets us one closer toward representing all 702 children! A past participant told us, “I am in shock at how easy this was. Just clicking on a link allowed me to raise $200 for CASA, when I was just going to pay my money and walk. I even increased my goal because I surpassed it in no time.”
Be a Virtual Runner: Can’t attend? Represent one of the 702 children in need of a CASA volunteer as a virtual runner for $20. Help to ensure that every child is represented!
What’s with the cape? For a donation of $3 or more, you will receive a red “champion” cape to wear during your walk or run to show your inner superhero for children. Capes are professionally-made capes provided by PowerCapes.com, and are super cool. The cape is yours to keep.
Raise funds in support of your run/walk: Have your registration fee waived by raising at least $50 with a personalized fundraising page on our easy online site. NOTE: If you register through firstgiving.com to raise money, you do not need to register through regular registration.
Awards: Awards will be presented to the top three overall male and female finishers and the top three in each age group. All participants will be eligible for lots of random prize drawings. The Team Spirit Award will be awarded to the team sporting the best outfits (just form a team of 3 or more friends and write in team name on registration).
