Thanks to Christ the King, Grace Community and Downtown Baptist churches for coming together to head up the third annual 5K charity run to encourage physical fitness throughout Alexandria and to support Casa Chirilagua! This year we had over 200 runners with over 25% coming directly from the Chirilagua neighborhood. Nine area churches participated, 13 companies supplied prizes or gifts, and 50 volunteers made this event a true community-wide effort. Altogether the event raised over $3000 for Casa. A hearty thank you to all our runners, sponsors, volunteers, and churches coming together to make this a fun and fulfilling event!
Exciting Finish to the Third Annual 5K Fun Run
Our relational network of volunteers and donors reflects a diverse group of individuals from all over the Washington, D.C. metro area. As a non-profit, we rely on the community for assisting program directors on-site, being mentors, supplying the needs of our food pantry, and everything in between. Each member of our Casa community holds a unique gift, whether time, talent or treasure.
