Over the past ten years, the Park-2-Park Bike Ride, CASA (court appointed special advocates) of Montana’s signature fundraising event, has raised money and public awareness to support the advocacy of Montana’s abused and neglected children. After careful consideration and with much regret, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to forego the ride this year due to challenges regarding the planning and infrastructure of the event. The enthusiasm and energy surrounding the efforts to make the 2015 ride happen was not enough to overcome some practical issues that arose which eroded the timeline for putting on the quality event Park-2-Park has always been. The Board will make a decision by Sept. 15, 2015 as to the future of Park-2-Park carefully considering all the factors and requirements necessary to successfully plan, organize and execute a great ride.
We are grateful for the passion about the ride and the work of CASA of Montana demonstrated by the solid commitment of a core group of volunteers, past riders and donors and potential new riders. CASA of Montana cannot provide support for quality local programs and the direct services to thousands of children in need without your strong, continued support.
Please accept our heartfelt thanks and deep appreciation for your continuing support of Park-2-Park and the mission of Montana’s CASA network of 15 independent programs to provide a volunteer advocate for every child who needs one.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact Joyce Funda, Executive Director, at 406.443.2448 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
