There are many ways to volunteer with CASA of the Continental Divide, but only one volunteer has hiked 5,000 miles in order to raise awareness for the organization. Elisabeth Perry set out in 2011 to hike through the Pacific Crest Trail that runs from Mexico to Canada. This hike was cut short by about 300 miles due to unprecedented snowfall levels. Elisabeth started the hike over again this year and completed the entire route.
CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates. The mission is to advocate in court for the best interest of children who are victims of abuse and neglect, in order to find them safe and permanent homes as soon as possible. CASA is a national organization with a local branch serving the 5th Judicial District of Colorado including Eagle, Lake, Summit, and Clear Creek Counties.
