5K/10K Course Map
The Percy and Donna Malone Child Safety Center invites walkers and runners of all ages, beginner level and experienced alike, to participate in a charity 5K/10K race to support children on their journey to healing after abuse and trauma. Run our 5K or certified 10K race routes through charming downtown Arkadelphia, Arkansas to cross the finish line amid the fanfare of live music from local bands.
To get you prepared for race day, partnering local business The Nutrition Den invites all registered participants to join in their 9-week 5K training, free of charge. Every Tuesday evening and Saturday morning beginning September 12 and leading up to the race you can learn the basics to improve your race form and build endurance.
Not a runner or walker? That's ok, too! We are inviting participating individuals, organizations, and businesses to form their own teams that will race to raise sponsorship dollars for our children. Encourage your friends and colleagues on their health goals while supporting the youngest members of our world. You can financially sponsor a registered individual or team by contributing to their campaign to support healing. Regardless of the race-day results, you will be a winner in the eyes of the children you help! We will track top fundraisers in our leaderboards weekly, so you can help move your favorite team forward while supporting a great cause.
Individual race registration fees are:
$15 student (K12 or university with ID)
$25 regular early registration
$30 day-of-race registration
Because we know today's children will be leading us forward, let's "Run the World" in support of their healthy future!
Give a Child A Voice: Community Sponsorship Leaderboards
Each handprint, much like those on our center walls, represents a child who shares his or her story through a forensic interview. The interview is the first step on a child's path to healing. Can you help to provide forensic interviews at our center to give a child a voice?
