Cupcakes for Casey – Run by Mrs. Brown's 3nd Grade Class at St. Mary's School in Winchester, MA. The kids hosted a bake sale and sold cupcakes to help raise a significant amount of money for the Casey-Girl Foundation. Our family was truly touched by this gesture. We cannot imagine a more fitting tribute to Casey and our Foundation than having these kids work together to raise money to be donated in Casey's name. It is a gesture that we will never forget. Thank you to the entire St. Mary's Family!
Tom Moore's Boston Marathon Run - Casey's Uncle Tom ran all 26.2 miles in sweltering conditions in Casey's Memory.

Congratulations to Jeff Simes who won the contest and enjoyed a Red Sox-Phillies Game with his Dad from front row Green Monster Seats!

We were blessed with beautiful weather. Kids enjoyed the clowns, magicians, caracter artists, visits from Shrek, Dora, Wally the Green Monster, Scooby-Doo, Woody and Sponge Bob. Adults enjoyed the Tours of Fenway Park, the Silent Auction and many raffle items. The day was a huge success. Thank you so much to those of you who attended the event, sponsored the event, donated items for the raffle and silent auction and donated money to our Foundation.

The Casey-Girl Foundation, Inc. raises money for two worthy causes: The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Dr. Joseph Madsen Research Fund through Children's Hospital Boston. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Make-A-Wish Foundation strives to provide a meaningful and carefree experience for the child and lasting, positive memories for the entire family. The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfills wishes with the hope of offering a welcome respite and just plain fun. Dr. Madsen's Research Fund through Children's Hospital Boston seeks to discover new ways to diagnose and treat neurological complications, including hydrocephalus, that impact the lives of children. This research project hopes to inspire a new generation of the best and brightest medical professionals to work on these critical issues. It is the hope of our family and everyone involved with The Casey-Girl Foundation that we will live long enough to see significant advancements in the treatment of these neurological disorders so that families much us like our family can see their children live a long and healthy life.
