The Child Abuse Prevention Association will hold its annual Step Up For Kids 5K on Saturday, April 13 in Live Oaks Park, Port Royal. The month of April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and CAPA invites you to Step Up For Kids to raise awareness and funds necessary to ensure prevention and intervention programs are available for Beaufort County’s children. Child abuse and neglect are community problems and touch the lives of all ages and socio-economic groups. The children and families of our community need our help now more than ever.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the race starts at 8 in Live Oaks Park. Participants may run, walk or push a stroller. Tickets are $35 for adults, $15 for juniors (8-12) and free for children under 12 with a paid adult. Applications are available at CAPA’s outreach center in Port Royal, or register online at www.stepupforkids.eventbrite.com. Register by April 1 to guarantee a T-shirt.
