“It’s just a fun event,” said Leigh Davis, spokesperson for CASA. “It’s something different we brought to the Texarkana community and everybody just loves the bright, colorful powders. It’s a fun thing for the kids. It brings out a lot of children and families which is what CASA is all about—helping children and families.”

CASA is an organization that aids more than a 1,000 abused and neglected children in this city. All proceeds from this race will go to providing help for these children.
