World Records for CASA

Jerry Frentsos

Help me raise money for the CASA!  My name is Jerry Frentsos and I love to swim and love to swim fast.  Over the past 20 years I have set 16 Masters Swimming world records, but as I quickly approach 50, I want to do more, hopefully, we all want to do more.  I want my pursuit of world records to be more than just my swimming.  I enjoy the training and racing for world records but I also enjoy using this opportunity to help kids find a better life, to feel safe and not live every day in fear.  Unfortunately, this takes time and money. 

It costs $3,000 to advocate for one child, please join me in my efforts to help care for abused and neglected children by making a pledge…

Beginning January 1, 2015, I will be joining the 50-54 age group and will begin competing.  I will continue my pursuit of world records until the November 7, 2015 CASAblanca Gala.  My goal is to break 5-10 world records. .  Learn more....

 

Every day in this country, 1,900 children become victims of abuse or neglect, and four of them will die. Every day. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children is a network of 951 community-based programs that recruit, train and support citizen-volunteers to advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in courtrooms and communities. Volunteer advocates—empowered directly by the courts—offer judges the critical information they need to ensure that each child’s rights and needs are being attended to while in foster care.

Volunteers stay with children until they are placed in loving permanent homes. For many abused children, a CASA volunteer is the only constant adult presence in their lives.

145 children had a CASA volunteer standing by their side last year, ensuring their voices were heard and their needs were met. But another 86 children go it alone. You can change that. Donate to Anne Arundel County CASA - help us reach every child. Read more...

Are you ready to change a child’s life? Join a national network of 75,000 volunteers standing up for the rights of abused and neglected children in their community.  Learn more>>
