Cassidy Cares FREE 5K Fun Run RESULTS


We had a tremendous turnout this morning for the Cassidy Cares 5K Fun Run to benefit The Kinder Garden in Easton, MD.  Cassidy was a beautiful soul taken from this earth too early, and today we were joined by many whose lives she touched in various ways.  The Kinder Garden was named the beneficiary of this race because that is where Cassidy worked.  Take a look at the generous donations from our local running/walking community today!








We had nearly 80 runners and walkers join us on the St. Michaels Nature Trail, and among those that participated, Cindy Palinkas came the closest to guessing her finish time, but not quite close enough to be declared the winner.

A special thanks to our volunteers this morning including staff members from The Kinder Garden, Ben Pittsley, JoAnna Murphy and Jan Greenhawk!

Be sure to plan on joining us for our November fun run on Sunday, November 19th!  More details to be announced soon!

Cassidy Cares FREE 5K Fun Run – October 28, 2017

Join us on Saturday, October 28 to celebrate and honor the life of Cassidy Stinton and give back to the organization that she loved so dearly.

A precious life was taken way too soon. Cassidy Stinton was only 19 when she lost her life in a tragic accident in 2015. She was a beautiful, energetic young woman who could brighten anyone’s day. She loved being with friends and family. Cassidy was an exceptional athlete and a caring person. We want to help carry on her memory by donating toys to the Kinder Garden, an early learning childcare facility, in Easton, MD.

And what’s an October 5k without costumes? Come celebrate Cassidy’s memory by dressing up in your favorite costume!! Before we run, we will have a COSTUME CONTEST with awards for the best overall costume!

So come on out for our Free 5k series and bring an unwrapped toy, that we can pass along to our friends at The Kinder Garden ( This will be one of our PREDICTED 5ks (as usual) so come on out, guess your finish time, and if you are within 10 seconds, you can win ANOTHER prize!!!!


Stay tuned for special promotions that we will be doing to remember Cassidy, as we build this race in her memory!

As usual, on-site registration and bib pick up will begin at 7:30am at the shop. The race will begin at 9am. Please remember to park at St. Michaels Elementary School then make the short walk to the shop for the race start. We hope to see you on the 28th!
