From the Baltimore Orioles... *** OriolesREACH, Nick & Christina Markakis partner with Casey Cares Foundation for 5K run/walk at Oriole Park August 3 The Orioles and OriolesREACH have partnered with the Casey Cares Foundation to host the fourth annual Casey Cares 5K run/walk at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, August 3. Orioles right fielder NICK MARKAKIS and his wife CHRISTINA will serve as race ambassadors. KEITH MILLS, Sports Director of 98 Rock and WBAL Radio, will be the event's emcee. "We are thrilled to partner with such a fantastic organization as the Orioles for our 5K," said CASEY BAYNES, Founder and Executive Director of the Casey Cares Foundation. "While many Casey Cares children do their 'running' through the halls in the hospital, you can help support these critically-ill children and their families by running or walking in our 5K." "Nick and I are so excited to be a part of the Casey Cares 5K," said CHRISTINA MARKAKIS. "It is inspiring to see the brave critically ill children and families that are helped through all of the Casey Cares Programs and awesome to see all the spirit come out of all the runners every year! We are thrilled to be a part of this special day, and help make every day count for critically ill kids." The 3.1 mile run/walk starts at 8:00 a.m. and begins and ends at Oriole Park. Refreshments and a "Home Plate Finish" photo will be provided to each participant. Race winners in each age group will be announced in a pre-game ceremony at the Orioles 7:05 p.m. game that night vs. the Seattle Mariners. Registration for the race is open now through August 3, and both teams and individuals are encouraged to register. Entry fees are $35 per person through August 2 or $40 on race day. To register, visit www.caseycares5k.org. All proceeds of the 5K will benefit the Casey Cares Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides personalized, uplifting and ongoing programs with a special touch to critically ill children and their family members throughout six states.
