Join us for our annual Family 5K Run/Walk for Life!! We are raising funds to support our ongoing mission of providing free quality medical, educational, and material support to at-risk women and families facing unplanned pregnancies. Our goal is that each and every person who comes to CCWS would be empowered and equipped with the medical care, resources, education, and support they need to raise healthy, happy children in stable, loving home environments. We do this through our medical services and educational programs. All of these services are provided free of charge.

We are planning for a fun morning that includes a 5K Run or 1 Mile Walk and our FREE KidsZone with lots of activities and fun to keep the kids busy all morning! Prizes awarded to the top finisher in each age category and for the individual and group who raises the most money to support the mission of CCWS!

We will be taking a collection for new baby items on race day. Please consider bringing a baby item to donate to the ministry. This can include a pack of diapers, wipes, formula, new clothing, new blankets, etc. These items will be given to clients in need.

Race participants will meet at Kerr Park. The race will take place on Struble Trail (starting at Kardon Park). The 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk races will begin at 9am so please arrive at 8am to find parking, register, and get your T-Shirt.
