February–March 2023 — Your time & place!

On Super Bowl Sunday, February 12, let’s kick-off our commitment to protect children and youth! Walk, run, ski, sled — get outdoors and support our vision of raising healthy generations free from sexual exploitation! Mall walkers — indoors works too!

  • Receive a Cherish All Children beanie or baseball cap with your donation of $25 or greater.
  • Help us raise $5,000 while enjoying a solo, family, or community activity.
  • Send us your pics, or post to social media using #CherishAllChildren5K (adding to our virtual 5K victories!).

Donate now so we can send your Cherish All Children beanie(s) or cap(s) today. Don’t need any merch? That’s okay, get together in your community to walk and support our work!

Email Joy McElroy if you have any questions.

Cherish All Children 2023 Hybrid 5K

Save the date: The weekend of June 9–11

Cherish All Children Race Graphic

This year we’ll offer both an in-person gathering to walk together, and the option to walk or run in your own community as we’ve done these past few years.

Start thinking about gathering a group to walk or run together in June, enlisting friends and family to sponsor you in support of Cherish All Children. Church groups, youth groups, Rotary Clubs and friends - have fun together while raising awareness and supporting our work. YOU can make a difference, helping us raise $20,000 to reach more families and youth!
