Dow Realty Group’s 1K Endurance Challenge Raises $12,000

CASA volunteer advocates, friends and supporters all gathered in Meredith this past Saturday for Dow Realty Group’s 1K Endurance Challenge — a road race that is truly for everyone! An original idea of Dow Realty Group, this fun challenge involved a .62 mile walk from Prescott Park in Meredith to a finish’wine’ between Hermit Woods Winery and Frog Rock Tavern. More than 70 participants completed the walk and enjoyed a complimentary wine tasting and beverage between the two establishments. With the support of participants and sponsors, the 1K Endurance Challenge raised more than $12,000 to support abused and neglected children in the Lakes Region.

This fun spirited event would not have been possible without the hard work of Dow Realty Group and CASA volunteers Pam Clark and Frieda Yueh, who organized and managed the entire day. Third party events like this one are a great way for local businesses to give back to CASA. They increase outreach into the specific community and generate awareness for CASA’s mission. If you are interested in hosting a third party event of your own, please contact Jo Lawrence at!
