About This Activity

Join the community for a great cause! "Running this race" together makes the truth less scary. Child sexual abuse is one of the most PREVALENT health problems facing children. It is also preventable. It is highly likely that you know a child who has or is being sexually abused. This epidemic affects 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys- 62% of these child victims never report the abuse. Breaking the Silence to Sexual Abuse 5K & 10K is an opportunity for our community to do what it's known for, coming together as one. If you know a child, work with children, have children or plan to have children, this run is for you. It's for EVERYONE. Awareness=Prevention.

For those who are bringing children, the discussion prior to the run is on sexual abuse. Join us for a professional DJ with music, awards, post-race snacks and resources! This course is certified and includes ChronoTrack computerized chip timing system. We have teamed up with Roper Kia and your registration fee is a charitable donation to Children's Center (a not-for-profit organization that provides a safe, child friendly setting for investigation of all child abuse in Southwest Missouri). Registration includes *race shirt and finishing medal. Together we can stand for the voiceless.

We will have raffle drawings for a 3 month GOLD membership at Millennium Fitness in Joplin. (Includes all fitness classes, use of all machines AND THE POOL! A $237 value)  AND $500 Comeau Jewelry gift certificate!

Survivor pins are available for those who wish to wear their freedom during their run. Survivor volunteers are encouraged to contact race director.
