Exciting news! The Secret City Half Marathon & Relay of Oak Ridge, was held on Nov 18, 2012, with a portion of its proceeds going to the Child Advocacy Center of Anderson County! Between sponsors for the 4 KIDS RUN, who donated directly to the Child Advocacy Center, and proceeds from the Half Marathon, the Child Advocacy Center total is approximately $5,000! This will help us continue to provide much needed services for the children.
We are so pleased, as our association with the Oak Ridge Track Club for the past four years has helped us bring community awareness about child abuse, as well as raise needed funds. We thank them (Frank especially) and all the many volunteers who worked together to make this event smooth and safe.
It was exciting to see so many children (1st – 6th grades) ready to run their final 1.1 mile of their own “Half Marathon”. Thank you to all the runners for their amazing efforts!
This support allows the Child Advocacy Center of Anderson County Tennessee to continue to provide services to children who are victims of childhood abuse or witnesses to other crimes. We can not do this important work without the help of our volunteers, donors, and supporters.
So, as we head into 2013, please remember that as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charitable organization, we need your help to ensure the children get the services they need to heal and recover from childhood abuse!
