About This Activity

Please join us on Saturday, May 2nd for a day of cycling in the scenic Flint Hills to support the Sunflower CASA Project.  CYCLE CASA 2015 includes two supported rides—a metric century touring through the Flint Hills and a fun ride to either the Ashland Community Center (12 miles round trip) or to the McDowell Creek Community Center (30 miles). 

Sunflower CASA Project serves children and families through three programs. 

CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates) volunteered their time to advocate for the best interests of 137 abused and neglected children involved in the court system. 59 victims of child sexual abuse and their non-offending caregivers received advocacy services at Stepping Stones Children’s Advocacy Center and 37 family groups received supervised visitation and exchange services at Sunflower Bridge Child Exchange and Visitation Center.
