NEW BRUNSWICK – Join the Kappa Delta Sorority from The College of New Jersey on Saturday, March 24, at 9 a.m. at the Mercer County Park for their “Shamrock ‘N’ Run” in support of Child Abuse Prevention Month and Prevent Child Abuse-New Jersey.
Child Abuse Prevention Month is a statewide campaign to raise awareness about supporting families and preventing child abuse. Each April, New Jersey and the entire nation makes a promise to prevention by distributing pinwheels – symbols of a happy, carefree, and healthy childhood – and hosting educational events throughout the state.
“Kappa Delta at TCNJ proudly supports Prevent Child Abuse’s mission because we believe in fostering confidence in children, something abuse and neglect can destroy. We commit ourselves to raising awareness in our college and local community by hosting our annual Shamrock ‘N’ Run 5K,” said Allison Smith, event organizer. “As a chapter we are very excited to spend the day together, knowing our event will benefit such a worthy cause. This year we are looking forward to having the support of our surrounding communities, family, and friends as well as PCA-NJ at our race!”
Registration check-in for the 5K portion will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 9:45 a.m., while registration for the walk portion will begin at 9 a.m. and will be continuous until the event ends at 11 a.m. Child care and supervision will be available from Kappy Delta sorority sisters.
Online registration for the event is available at www.practicehard.com/RegisterEvent.asp?eid=929. The 5K portion cost is $20, while the “1 Mile Fun Walk” portion is $10. All proceeds support Prevent Child Abuse-New Jersey and their evidence-based prevention and education programs throughout the state.
