CASA River Century

Saturday, May 16, 2015 7:00 am - 8:00 am
This event does not repeat

Join us for a self-paced cycling event for all levels in the beautiful Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia! The CASA River Century will be held May 16, 2015 and will offer routes for all ability levels- from families with children to recreational cyclists or serious cyclists who are looking for a training event early in the season.  We invite you to join us, and the best part is - it does benefit a great cause…CASA kids!

The 2015 CASA River Century features the best of previous years rides and we have added several new areas to allow riders to see the most beautiful and historic portions of West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. Ride past century old homes, apple orchards, tree lined roads, the Potomac River and family farms.

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates.  All proceeds from this event will benefit CASA kids in the Eastern Panhandle this way…through the recruitment, screening, training, supervision and retention of community volunteers who become CASA.  CASAs are appointed by judges to advocate for children (birth to age 18) removed from their homes due to child abuse and neglect. CASAs work with the child, their families and caregivers, their teachers, doctors and basically anyone who touches the life of the child in order to make factual recommendations to the court as to the best interest of the child and make referrals as to the safe and permanent placement of the child.
