Kids 4 Kids 5k CasITa-to-5k Graduation Day

The CasITa-to-5k has set an official graduation date of Sunday, April 17th, at the Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF) Kids 4 Kids 5k RUN/WALK.

The race benefits the Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF). The CCRF is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing national support for pediatric cancer clinical research and improving the medical environment for all children.

One of CCRF's initiatives was to donate children's hospital gowns with Disney and Warner Bros. characters to hospitals across the country. This small gesture was significant to me because I distinctly remember visiting a pediatric oncology ward and thinking that the Disney hospital gowns and masks were a cheery touch in an otherwise sterile environment.

The CasITa-to-5k will also donate money to sponsor a couple of families with children with cancer to attend the event.

The Kids 4 Kids 5k will feature an 'All Star' Carnival with athletes and celebrities at the Finish. The CasITa-to-5k will have the opportunity to meet Walkaround Elmo and maybe even get a graduation picture with the guy.


  1. What a fantastic event! I'm trying to get involved with more charity events around running but sadly there aren't many in SA. I'll have to change that. Have a great weekend Green Girl!

  2. Great fun for everyone and what a good cause. Somehow it makes it so much more worth while when you run for a cause than trying to simply PR.

  3. I think the Disney charaters is a fantastic idea, the kids will love it!! Graduation day is coming up soon :).

  4. This looks like so much fun, the community will LOVE this! I wish LA wasn't so far away!

  5. If this was an All Star event, why wasn't I invited as a Star. Hmmmh, my invite probably got lost in the mail.

  6. What a fantastic event. Good job on all the charity events thus far. You have increased them from last year/ I am trying to do more of them this year, so this was a great post.
