Come join us for a beautiful run through the historic district of Ocala. By registering for the
Race Against Child Abuse 5K you can help Marion County’s children find healing.
Overcoming child abuse and neglect is a difficult process because the road
to healing means children must name and revisit the painful things that
were done to them. This journey is made easier when children and those
who are helping them know they aren’t walking alone.
