Gina Truesdale brings her whole crew to the Casey Cares 5K! Gina and her family are very special to Casey Cares. Her son, Abraham Scrivner, was in our program while he was being treated for a very rare form of brain cancer.
Abraham, or “Hammy”, passed away 5 years ago, at the age of 10.
After Hammy passed, Gina jumped into Casey Cares as a volunteer, and created the “Hammy’s Heart” program. That program supplies grocery store gift cards to families who need assistance while caring for a critically ill child. Since families are often overwhelmed with so many other financial obligations, this program helps with basic needs when times are tough.
She started running the Casey Cares 5K in memory of her son. “The best part of running/walking is: Remembering Hammy's life, while still supporting other families who now need Casey Cares.”
You won’t be able to miss Gina and her team because there is one thing she will not run without – “My Hammy t-shirt!”
Join Gina and sign up today. Her family is the reason Casey Cares does what we do. When you’re out running, and you see the “Hammy’s Hearts” t-shirts – be sure to say hello!
