5K Race/Fitness Walk to benefit Care House

5 for the Kids

Dayton Bar Association to Hold 5K Race Benefiting CARE House

The Dayton Bar Association is holding its Annual “5 for the Kids” 5K run and fitness walk to benefit CARE House on Friday, June 28, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. outside Brixx Ice Company in Downtown Dayton.

The “5 for the Kids” has become a tradition for runners and walkers in the Dayton area. It is organized by the Young Lawyer Division of the Dayton Bar Association to raise money and awareness for child victims of abuse and neglect through CARE House, an affiliate of Dayton Children's Medical Center. Last year, the 5 for the Kids event raised over $10,000 for CARE House through the generosity of local businesses, individual sponsors, and race participant registration.

Starting from outside Brixx Ice Company located at 500 East First Street in Downtown Dayton, the 3.1 mile course leads participants past Fifth Third Field and along the Great Miami River before returning to the Brixx “Refueling Station” where they will be greeted with complimentary food and drink, an awards presentation to the top male and female participants, as well as live entertainment.

About CARE House:

CARE House, a Children's Advocacy Center (CAC), is a child-focused, facility-based program in which representatives from many disciplines-law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy-work together, conducting child interviews and making joint decisions about the investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child abuse cases. A core belief in children's advocacy centers is that the combined wisdom and professional knowledge of professionals of different disciplines will result in a more complete understanding of case issues and the most effective, child and family focused system response. The CAC model is now considered the best practice model for the investigative and delivery of treatment services of abused and neglected children. More information about CARE House can be found at www.thecarehouse.org. Any questions should be directed to Angela Butler at (937) 512-1670 or butlera@childrensdayton.org.
