AFSL was a Bronze Sponsor of Team CASA in the 2013 Under Armour Baltimore Running Festival which took place on Saturday, October 12.

The Maryland Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) For Children Association was one of the many charities that raised money for their cause in the race.  Team CASA raised over $45,000 to help abused and neglected children find safe, permanent homes.

In addition to its sponsorship, firm partner, Paul Schwab, volunteered as Captain of the “CASA’s” Water Station at mile 19.  He supervised 30 students from Towson University that volunteered from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the race day and distributed thousands of cups of water and Gatorade to the runners.

More About Maryland CASA Association:

CASAs, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, are trained volunteers, appointed by the court to speak up for the best interests of vulnerable children. Last year, nearly 1,000 CASA volunteers served more than 1,300 children in Maryland. But with 10,000 children living in foster care, 9 out of 10 of them have no advocate speaking up for their best interests.
