Casey's Kids 5K Fun Run

The date for the 2015 Casey's Kids Fun Run has been set! Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 16th. Casey's Kids is an organization named in honor of long-time Keller ISD counselor Janie Casey who wanted to find ways to provide additional support for KISD families that were economically disadvantaged. She established the annual Casey's Kids Fun Run, the now annual 5K that gives District families an opportunity to come together for a time of fun, exercise, and socializing all while supporting a worthy and noble cause.
