Madison County Child Advocacy Center Director Carrie Cohan, today announced the Center’s partnership with Edwardsville Township for the Annual Champions 4 Children Candy Corn Dash 5K to be held Saturday, September 20, 2014 at the Robert C Stille Edwardsville Township Community Park located at 6368 Center Grove Road in Edwardsville. Edwardsville Township is a Running Dash sponsor of the event.
“Deciding on where to have a 5K Race can be a difficult decision. The planning committee takes on the responsibility of participant safety, clear paths, accessibility for those that are participating, and of course, fun,” said Madison County Child Advocacy Center Director Carrie Cohan. “When the Child Advocacy Center was searching for a new venue for their upcoming event, Edwardsville Township Park was the best fit.”
The 5K Dash (3.1 Miles) is open to walkers and runners, and will begin in the Edwardsville Township Community Park and continue on the Madison County Trail System Nickelplate Trail. The day of the Dash will be fun for all ages. There will be music, snacks, and games for children and families. Eddie the Cougar from SIUE will be stopping by that morning as well!
“The Township is thankful for the opportunity to support this event and the Madison County Child Advocacy Center,” said Frank Miles, Edwardsville Township Supervisor. “The Edwardsville Township Community Park is a great location for the Candy Corn Dash 5K which we hope is a success!”
All proceeds raised from this event will go to benefit victims of child abuse in Madison County. To register online for the Candy Corn Dash please visit www.madco-cac.org/events. You can also reach the Child Advocacy Center by phone at 618-296-5398 for more information.
