Bicyclist raises money for CASA
Portland bicyclist Jay Kapp recently completed a cross-country bike ride that raised $3,598 for CASA for Children of Multnomah, Washington and Columbia Counties, according to a press release from the nonprofit.
Kapp made a 3,300-mile ride from Portland to New York City. He took a bike, a tent, some food and water, and brought along a loyal group of online supporters, the release states. He completed his cross-country trek July 27.
Volunteers for CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, are trained to work with judges, social workers, teachers, foster parents and family members to advocate in the best interest of children in Oregons court and welfare systems.
