Lace up your running shoes and mark your calendars for the Casey Cares 3rd Annual 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 7!

Teams and families are especially encouraged to participate. A $250 prize will be awarded for the top male and top female finishers!
New this year, we are very excited to announce our partnership with Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis and his wife Christina. The Markakis Family shares our mission of providing support to deserving children in our local community, and as race ambassadors they will kick off the event and lend their support to our cause.
Register before September 1 and receive a free ticket to the Baltimore Orioles home game September 28!
Help us do more for the families in our programs by creating a fundraising page! You can raise funds as an individual, or join a team. The first 25 fundraisers to create a page will receive a Nick Makakis bobblehead, plus there will be a prize for the top fundraising team!
About Casey Cares Foundation: The Casey Cares Foundation provides ongoing, uplifting programs with a special touch to critically ill children and their families.
In 2000, Casey Cares began by helping five Baltimore families all dealing with the same devastating truth — a child diagnosed with a life threatening illness. Today, our unique programs give hope and support to more than 400 families each year in times of great uncertainty. As our organization grows, we remain committed to providing customized, uplifting activities not just once a lifetime or once a year, but many times throughout a child’s illness and even a year beyond.
Headquartered in Baltimore, Md., the Foundation’s reach includes Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C.
