About This Activity

CYN's 12th Annual Take A Step For Kids 5K Run/Walk and Team Event is a fun, family friendly event that takes participants around the beautiful loops of Independence Grove. Registrants have the option of walking or running a 5K course or competing in a 5K team event. The 5K Run is CARA Certified, USATF Certified and chip-timed.   CARA Members receive a $3 discount. 
The Team Competition will be scored using cross country scoring.  The top 5 runner's scores on each team will be combined to create a team score. Running on a team does not disqualify you from winning individual awards.

14 & under      15-19      20-24      25-29      30-34     35-39      40-44      45-49      50-54     55-59      60-64      65-69     70 & Older

Why Take A Step for Kids Matters

Take A Step for Kids is held annually during Child Abuse Prevention Month to bring attention to the serious need to protect children and provide them with support.  CYN Counseling Center is a local Non-Profit, Counseling Center; our agency's mission is “to preserve and strengthen families while protecting children from abusive and high risk situations."
Every day we provide children in Lake County and the surrounding areas with much needed counseling to heal their past trauma and to give them hope for a bright and healthy future. 
Proceeds from the Run/Walk go directly towards providing counseling services to hundreds of children, families and individuals every year. We work hard to provide our clients with a variety of services including individual counseling, group counseling and play therapy. 
Join us and help support families and children who have been victims of physical, mental and sexual abuse.
