About This Activity
Please join us for our 3rd Annual Kick Abuse at Kickapoo 5K Trail Run and Fun Walk on April 18, 2015. Come run or walk through the rolling fields and vineyards of the Kickapoo Creek Winery in Edwards, IL, just west of Peoria, IL. Reminiscent of cross country runs, the course is mostly on grass and has a few rolling hills. This year we are part of the IVS Grand Prix Series!
All participants 21+ will receive 3 FREE Wine Tastings from Kickapoo Creek Winery to enjoy after the Run/Walk.
For the 2nd year, Kickapoo Creek Winery will offer a brunch after the run/walk for a miminal cost (under $10 per person).
For the past 20 years the Pediatric Resource Center (PRC) has provided specialized medical exams and social services to children who are suspected victims of child physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect.
Facts about PRC:
The PRC is the only program in the region providing complete head-to-toe examinations in a child-friendly manner by specially-trained medical staff. Our staff use distraction and calming techniques; no child is ever held down during an exam.
The need keeps growing! - Last year PRC evaluated a record number of children – over 430.
Since opening our doors in 1993, we have evaluated over 6,500 children from 53 counties in Illinois and 9 states.
PRC is affiliated with Children’s Hospital of Illinois and serves as the child abuse team for the hospital.
The PRC also provides medical consults, crisis counseling, education and training, as well as coordinates with other agencies to integrate medical advocacy into the child protection and criminal justice systems.
The PRC is a community service program of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.
100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to helping us continue our mission to help abused and neglected children.
