About This Activity

Join us for the 3rd annual Empower the Children 5K Run/Walk! This fun, family event will take place Saturday, April 18th at Westgate Hills, Havertown PA. It starts out at the park on Oxford Hill Lane and finishes after just two loops of the beautiful neighborhood. Expect two hills and an easy downhill on this certified course.

This year, all proceeds from the race will go towards Assessment Services at Child Guidance. The first step of the mental health journey begins with an evaluation. Every child deserves high-quality, compassionate care. The evaluation process can be overwhelming and scary. Sometimes insurance won't cover all the costs of care. With your help, we can make sure every family gets the opportunity to get the best treatment for their individual needs. You can make a difference in a child’s life!

Helping families open the door to mental health is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1) Register to join us on April 18th.

2) Decide if you'd like to create a fundraising page. We hope you do! Next, set your fundraising goal and let your family and friends know they can support you by logging onto your page and making a donation. Every penny counts! We will present awards at the event to the top fundraiser.

3) Spread the word! Tell your family, friends and co-workers to join you at the Empower the Children 5k Run/Walk. You can even create a team! Put together a group of five or more runners/walkers and we will list your name on our event t-shirt. We can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning with your loved ones :)

We'll see you runners, walkers, fundraisers and friends on April 18th!
