The “5 Factors Fund 5K Walk & Run” brings together new and lifelong runners to showcase the positive effects of an active lifestyle. Come out to the beautiful Dorothea Dix Park on April 13th to walk or run a 5K or 1-mile course while learning about how the simple act of walking or running is part of Five Protective Factors that are linked to a lower incidence of child abuse and neglect.
Proceeds from the 5 Factors Fund 5K will support Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina (PCANC), the only statewide organization dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Through investment in innovative programs proven to prevent child maltreatment before it occurs, PCANC helps North Carolina’s communities decrease factors that put children at risk for abuse and increase factors that encourage children to thrive. Through our offices in Raleigh, we serve every community in North Carolina.
All registered participants get a free t-shirt and free Pinwheel Temporary Tattoo as part of the Pinwheels for Prevention® national effort to raise awareness for child abuse prevention efforts.
