SKW to host Fun Run, 5K in April

February 16, 2013

April is Child Abuse Prevention month, and there is no better place to raise awareness for this issue than West Point, home of Sally Kate Winters Family Services.
The Sally Kate Winters Home services families and runaway teens who are dealing with bad home environments and abusive situations.
SKW will be hosting its fourth annual Spring Into Action event on April 13, which will include a 5 p.m child Fun Run, followed by a full-on 5K at 5:30.
“We want to be a silver lining for kids when they are in a dark place,” said Heather Usry, spokesperson for SKW.
The event, which shares a day with the first Art Walk to come town will be in Sally Kate Winters Park in hopes of raising money to expand the services the organization offers over the next year.
SKW will also put on a Child Abuse Prevention Parade a week prior to this event on April 4.
The cost for the Fun Run will be $15 per child, and the cost for running in the 5K will be $25 per person.
