5th Annual CASA 0.5k “Run”

It’s that time again! The annual CASA 0.5k fundraiser “run” is back at a new location! The 5th annual 0.5k will be held at Thirsty Street Brewing Co. @ The Garage (2123 1st Ave N, Billings MT 59101), and we are bringing back the classics you’ve come to love! A post-race beverage (“adult” & kid friendly options), a donut station at the halfway point in the “race”, and let’s not forget the fun shirts, stickers, and other swag! Plan to stay awhile after the race and enjoy the evening with music, fun, and a new addition of food trucks with food to purchase after your strenuous “run”. By “running” the 0.5k “race”, you are helping CASA of Yellowstone County raise funds to recruit and train volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates for children in the Yellowstone County foster care system.

 

We have in-person and virtual options again this year. Make sure to sign up before Sunday August 22nd to guarantee you will have a shirt on race day! No refunds, and no “make-up” beverage.

You can also pick up your race packet the day of the race, September 10th, at Thirsty Street Brewing Co. @ The Garage (2123 1st Ave N, Billings MT 59101) starting at 2:00 PM, and the “race” starts at 3:00 PM!

Montana Women’s Run

The mission of the Montana Women’s Run is to promote health and fitness among women, especially women who would not otherwise exercise. The Run purposely reaches out to women of all ages and abilities, with awards for females from age 8 & Under to 90 & Over. In 1994, participation reached a level that enabled the Run to give funds back to the community to further the goal of promoting health and fitness. This began the Run’s history of giving. As of 2021, the Race has donated over $1,540,600 to benefit local women’s services including $90,000 for 2021. The major recipients are the Billings YWCA, the Billings Clinic Women’s Wellness Fund, MSU-B Women’s Cross Country Scholarship, Rocky Mountain College Women’s Cross Country Scholarship, the Billings Family YMCA, and the Montana Amateur Sports Foundation.

The Montana Women’s Run also includes 8 Getting Started Clinics to get women ready for the Race, a Kids’ Run for kids 10 and under, a Pint Night with an inspirational speaker, and a Volunteer Party to thank the 400 volunteers that rally to make the event possible.
