Run TrackTown 5K Benefiting CASA
Saturday, May 9, 2015
We are partnering this year with the Eugene Marathon as the beneficiaries of their Run TrackTown 5K and Kids Run! A portion of your registration to run or walk this event will be donated to CASA. You can also choose to fundraise for CASA in support of your run or walk.
You will start from 15th Ave and Agate and finish on the track at historic Hayward Field amidst the celebration of Marathon weekend festivities. And, of course, don’t forget to purchase your Champion Cape for just $5 when you register or on race morning, 100% of which goes to CASA!

Can’t make it on May 9th? You can register as a “VIRTUAL” runner and help one of the 702 children in need. Click here to give $25 and sleep in!
Meet Ashton & Brianne, Honorary Chairs
Join 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
