Every child needs a HERO fighting for them. Abused and neglected children need superheroes like you to step up and step forward! DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A SUPERHERO FOR CHILDREN IN NEED? You can be a SUPERHERO for a child and join us on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 at the Athens High School in Athens, PA at 10:00am with your sneakers and super cape as we race for healing for our children.
The Children’s House/CAC (http://www.childrenshousepa.org), is a 501 c3 not-for-profit organization that provides free services to child victims and families in a child friendly and safe environment. They invite the community to participate in the organization’s Fourth Annual “RACE FOR HEALING” . On-site registration opens at 9:00 am and goes until 9:45. A kids fun run will be taking place at 9:45 with a registration fee of $10. Participants and teams can register by visiting http://childrenshousepa.org/useful-links/events/race-for-healing-5k-run// or register the morning of the event.
Proceeds will stay locally and benefit The Children’s House/CAC programs to ensure that every child victim has a chance to heal. “Last year, more than 70 people of all ages joined us in the park on a beautiful summer Saturday. We want to make this beautiful event bigger and better this year,” said Edith Jordan, Executive Director of the Children’s House/CAC. Please register to run or walk with us, or if you can’t make it, consider donating to help us create a better life for our children, one step at a time!
