Registration open for ‘Run a Minion Miles To Kindness’ 2020 Casey In Action 5K Virtual Fun Run/Walk


CASEY — Casey In Action’s annual KZ5K is taking on a new twist this year. To foster public health and safety, their 2020 race will be in virtual format. Run a Minion Miles To Kindness participants will be able to devise their own course (anywhere) and complete on their own time (anytime) between the dates of Aug. 5 and Sept. 15.

Racers are asked to document their accomplishment by posting selfies on the race Facebook page, CIA KZ5K. Participants are also encouraged to perform and document an act of kindness as well. Safely get some exercise, do some good and have fun.

Registration is $25 and forms received by Aug. 15 will guarantee a race t-shirt and medallion, both featuring the minion and race theme.

Visit to register online anytime from now to Sept. 15. Hard copy registration forms with payment must be sent to Casey In Action, PO Box 163, Casey, IL 62420. A printable registration form is included on the race Facebook page.

T-shirt and medallion pickup dates will be held 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27 and 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 5 at Whitling Whimsy, 107 E. Main (next to the World’s Largest Wind Chime). If you prefer or need to have your t-shirt and medallion mailed, add $5 to the registration fee.

Net proceeds will benefit CIA’s community projects, the Casey Popcorn Festival and Big Things in a Small Town.
