Thank you to Bottomline Technologies for choosing CASA of New Hampshire as the nonprofit partner for its annual Race for a Cause 5k. Held on a perfectly sunny and cool September morning, more than 120 runners and walkers, two dozen sponsors, along with friends and volunteers supported the race which raised $70,000 for CASA.
“The Race for a Cause has become a flagship event for us and we are delighted that so many of Bottomline’s employees, partners, vendors and the entire community come together to support such a worthwhile cause,” said Rob Eberle, president and CEO of Bottomline Technologies. “The support we receive from sponsors is an incredible outpouring of generosity. We are just the organizers, it’s really the sponsors and all who show up on race day who make this event a true success.”
While Cameron Cook was the overall winner in the men’s division with a finish time of 17:28 and Erika Luczynski won the overall women’s title running it 19:38, the fan favorite part of the day is the Kid’s Fun Run. Watching these future running superstars, some as young as 3 years old, run their fastest to cross the finish line, was inspiring. And adorable.
“To see these kids run with such enthusiasm and joy, helps us remember there are lots of kids out there who don’t get this chance and that’s why we’re so grateful to Bottomline, the race sponsors, and all who supported the race,” said Marty Sink CASA CEO and president. “Their generosity makes it possible for CASA volunteers to advocate on behalf of New Hampshire’s abused and neglected children, so that all kids can make it to the finish line with love and support.”
