4th Annual 5k Run/1Mile Walk

to Benefit the Family Visitation Center

In memory of Duncan and Jack Leichtenberg, and in celebration of their lives, you are invited to attend the 4th Annual 5K Run/1 Mile Walk to support the Family Visitation Center (FVC) of The Children’s Foundation of Children’s Home + Aid.

The FVC offers a safe, neutral site for visitation between the non-custodial parent and child(ren). The FVC provides safety protocols that keep parents separated during visitation or exchange drop-off and therefore in compliance with orders of protection and no contact orders. The FVC also provides supervised non-custodial parental visitations and exchanges to clients experiencing a high conflict divorce, domestic violence, child abuse and stalking. The FVC offers a safe place to children and families in our community.

Due to drastically reduced Federal and State funding for the FVC, proceeds of this race will be used to increase the level of critical support to clients of the Family Visitation Center.

The race will take place on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at Tipton Park (see map of race route):
1:00 p.m.—Check-in/Registration
2:30 p.m.—5k Race Begins
3:15 p.m.—1 mile Family Walk begins

Cost to participate is as follows:

  • Individual Registration: $30 for single participant, t-shirts are guaranteed to participants registered by March 31, 2014
