Children's Friend 5k Walk and Run

  • Roger Williams Park 1000 Elmwood Ave Providence, RI (map)

Celebrate spring time with a Saturday at Roger Williams Park! 

Join Children’s Friend and Panera Bread on Saturday, April 30, 2016 for a great day at the park for a good cause. 

We’re raising money for Rhode Island's most vulnerable children with a walk or timed 5K run, live performances, arts and crafts, and all kinds of fun for children and adults! 

There will also be plenty of delicious food from Panera Bread. 

The proceeds from The Walk & Run benefit Children's Friend, Rhode Island's oldest child welfare agency. 

Children’s Friend is the innovative leader in improving the well-being and healthy development of Rhode Island’s most vulnerable young children. We accomplish this by providing flexible, effective, and culturally-relevant services, and advocating for programs and policies that support and strengthen these children and their families.
