THE DOWNTOWN MILE FOR CASA is our premier annual fundraising event. The 2022 race was held Saturday, September 10, and we’re thrilled to share that the race generated slightly more than $10,000 for CASA!

Organized by the Fredericksburg Area Running Club, the race features a 1-mile sprint through downtown, ending with a block party on Charles Street, near Castiglia’s Italian Restaurant.

The Downtown Mile for CASA strengthens our efforts to provide each child in need with a well-trained, caring and effective advocate.
