Commemorating April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Pediatric Resource Center is raising awareness and much needed funds in the fight against child abuse and neglect with the 5th Annual 5K Kick Abuse at Kickapoo Creek Winery Trail Run/Walk on Saturday, April 15.
Cost is $30 adults/$25 students. All proceeds go toward helping the PRC provide medical exams and case management services to child victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. Last year, the PRC evaluated a record number of children – more than 440 kids! Help stop this trend.
Whether you're interested in running, volunteering or sponsoring this great event, please contact PRC at 624-9595. Online registration at http://go.illinois.edu/kickabuse5k.
The Pediatric Resource Center program is operated by the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria's Department of Pediatrics.
