Run Baby Run increases awareness of WRC, need for volunteers

The Women’s Resource Center will hold its 9th annual Run Baby Run on Saturday, May 4. Run Baby Run is a walk/run to increase awareness of the Women’s Resource Center and the services they are able to provide for free to women and their families in the community. This year, the WRC would like to raise awareness of their need for volunteers. Over the past year the center has lost some long-time volunteers because of relocation and health issues. Christian women with a heart for ministering to the young women of the community are needed.

There will be a 1 mile and 5K event, both starting at the front of the First Baptist Church on 2nd Street.

Registration/check in for both events will begin at 8 a.m. Run Baby Run is open to all ages and for children under five there will be no charge. In addition to the 1 mile and 5K there will be a balloon release in honor of all the boys, girls, and unborn children served by the WRC.

The pre-registration deadline has been extended to April 23.
5K = $25 pre-registration, $30 after deadline
1Mile = $20 pre-registration, $25 after deadline
Both 5K & 1M = $35 pre-registration, $40 after deadline
