Let’s do it again!
Ironman Vinod Dasika is back to support the 2016 Improve the Lives of Children with Special Needs Fundraising effort!
"The mission of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Stanislaus County is to provide quality advocacy services for all abused and neglected children in the dependency system through the use of trained volunteers. CASA of Stanislaus County is a passionate community organization that provides children received through the court system with personalized advocacy and support. Our goal is to provide a safe, permanent, nurturing environment for every child served, including children afflicted with special needs."
What drives Vinod to do a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run in the Ironman triathlon? passion, focus, dedication and an abundance of energy. And a purpose ... to help special needs children.
Vinod Dasika is an accomplished endurance athlete. He has competed in numerous marathons and triathlons including four-time Ironman finishes. This is his 5th Ironman Triathlon race being held in Tempe, Aizona, November 20th, 2016. He would again like to use this upcoming race to raise awareness of children with special needs. (NOTE : RACE DATE IS NOVEMBER 20,2016 BUT YOUR TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION CAN BE MADE UNTIL 12/31/2016)
The over $3000 raised in 2014 improved the lives of children with special needs by allowing CASA to train more volunteers to meet the needs of children in foster care. Currently, there are 383 children in foster care at CASA of Stanislaus County on a waiting list for an Advocate. They need our help.
This is close to his heart since his niece Divya has Cerebral Palsy.
Divya's Ironman needs your help!
Our goal by December 31st, 2016 is $5000. Please share this link with your friends and family. http://bit.ly/2dMG01O. Thank you.
