About This Activity


April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. The blue pinwheel is nationally recognized as a symbol for Child Abuse Prevention representing the innocence and bright futures of our children. In Wicomico County alone, there were over 500 cases of child abuse reported in the last year. Sadly, many cases of child abuse are unreported. Help us break the silence that surrounds this issue, and protect and empower our children! By working together to educate ourselves and our community, we can find new solutions and strengthen existing programs concerning child abuse. 


Join us by lacing up your running shoes and registering individually or as a team for our 5K run/ walk. Your support directly assists The Life Crisis Center and the Wicomico Child Advocacy Center in the fight against child abuse. The Life Crisis Center serves the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland with comprehensive support services for victims of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and child abuse.The Wicomico Child Advocacy Center assists children and families impacted by child abuse from report through prosecution by partnering with law enforcement and the State’s Attorney’s Office.
