Commemorating April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Pediatric Resource Center (PRC) is raising awareness and much needed funds in the fight against child abuse and neglect with the 11th Annual Kick Abuse 5K Trail Run/Fun Walk. Back this year is a Kids Fun Run for children, ages 10 and under, to start immediately after the finish of the Run/Walk.

All proceeds will help the PRC provide specialized, child-friendly medical exams and case management services to child victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect.
