Sixth Annual Celebrate Casey 5K COVID-19 Response

Hello everyone,

Given the recent world circumstances and this new virus making its way through the United States, I'm sure you are aware of the implications this has created with regards to many universities and public events across the country. It is unfortunate to report that the Sixth Annual Celebrate Casey 5K is one of many events having to be postponed, altered, or cancelled in the attempts to mitigate any spread of this virus. In the effort to not cancel the event and try and continue to honor Casey's amazing spirit and the wonderful work the Casey Doolin Foundation does for our community, we have decided to instead switch this year's event to a virtual race.

For those who had previously registered as virtual runners; nothing has changed for you. For those who had registered to run in person the day of the event; your registration will be converted to a virtual runner. Race shirts will be mailed to those who are not affiliated with Saint Joseph's University and those who are will be contacted to pick up their shirt at a later date when it is safer to gather.

In an effort to still make this event as meaningful as possible and give people something to look forward to, we will be creating a video as a tribute to commemorate this year's event and use as a promotion for future years to come. If you have the time, we ask that you take a moment showing how you choose to honor Casey this Sunday; whether it be through a photo, a video of you giving a few kind words, or a clip of you doing something to honor her spirit. However, please remember to stay safe in whatever you may choose and not put yourself at any unnecessary risk. Casey was a resilient, strong girl, so it is only appropriate that we act resiliently in the face of these unfortunate circumstances.

I sincerely apologize for any disappointment this may cause and am available for any questions, comments, or concerns of any kind. Above all else, I hope everyone is able to stay safe, healthy, happy, and calm during this unusual period of time.

Celebrate Casey: The 6th Annual 5k Run/Walk

“Casey was a dedicated, fearless, compassionate and spirited young lady, who touched many lives in her short time with us.”

A graduate of St. Josephs University, Class of 2012, with a degree in sports marketing, and a graduate of Parkland High School, Class of 2008. She was a member of St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church. At Saint Joseph's University, she was a brother of Delta Sigma Pi, Hawk Host, Orientation Leader, and participated in community service events such as Community Day, Back On My Feet, Project Appalachia, Winter Immersion and the Philadelphia Service Immersion Program.  During her senior, Casey was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). After a long battle, she passed away in August of 2013. 

Casey had a remarkable zest for life and battled her illness with incredible dignity and grace. She had a fighting spirit and approached every obstacle with that same zeal. Casey lived life to the fullest by remaining true to herself and always touching someones life in the process.

Please join us as we celebrate the life of Casey Doolin. The event will go, Rain or Shine!
