HARKER HEIGHTS (April 5, 2013)--In honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month, a True Blue Run has been set for Saturday.

Hosted by ReVive Med Spa and Wellness Center and the Children’s Advocacy Center of Central Texas (CACCT), the 5k run will take place at Carl Levine Park.

All of the proceeds will benefit the CACCT, specifically the Children’s Advocacy Center and Court Appointed Special Advocates programs whose funding was cut this year.

A recent survey showed that in Bell and Coryell counties 1,138 children were confirmed victims of child abuse and 1,137 were put in the care of the state.

Saturday’s run will be at 8 a.m. with registration slated for 7 a.m.

A fun run is set for 9 a.m.

5k runners should expect to pay $30 online or $35 at the gate.

The 1k family fun run is $25 per person, however, it is free for children.

An awards ceremony will follow.
