About This Activity

WHAS CRUSADE FOR CHILDREN 5K

The Bardstown City Schools Department of Special Education and the Bardstown Fire Department would love to see you at our 2nd Annual “Run for the Kids”, WHAS Crusade for Children 5K. This charity run will be August 27, 2016 in downtown Bardstown, with all proceeds earned donated to the WHAS Crusade for Children.

As you may or may not know, the WHAS Crusade for Children provides grant money to non-profit agencies, schools, and hospitals that serve children with special needs up to age 18. The term “special needs” is defined as physical, mental, emotional, or medical needs. Many children in Nelson County community have benefited from the Crusade’s generosity. In the past, Bardstown City Schools have received grants that funded equipment such as: iPads, touch screen computers, a special needs playground, and Snoezelen (multi-sensory) rooms in two district schools. In the last three school years alone, Bardstown City Schools has received more than $80,000.00 in funds from the WHAS Crusade for Children.   

Come out, be active, and help us raise money for an incredible cause...and some pretty amazing kids! Hope to see you there!

PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED FOR THE TOP FINISHERS IN BOTH THE MALE AND FEMALE CATEGORIES:

First Place: $50

Second Place: $25
