LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Subaru of Indiana Automotive is gearing up for the 8th annual CASA Cycling Challenge.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) help children that are involved in cases of abuse or neglect.

The 24-hour bicycle challenge is the biggest fundraiser for the CASAs for Kids Fund.

Individuals or teams can pledge money and ride their bikes around the 2 mile-long test track at SIA.

With April being Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness and Prevention month, now is a great time to sign up for the event.

"This is something that anybody can do. You can ride but even if you don't want to ride you can donate, you can sponsor. This is a way that you can make a difference in children's lives," said the founder of the CASAs for Kids Fund, Patti O'Callaghan.

O'Callaghan said the event it a great time for coworkers to bond.

"It really is an opportunity for a company to get together and spend time together and work on it," said O'Callaghan.

The challenge will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday Aug 18 and wrap up at 10 a.m. the following day.
