14th Annual Glow Run for Child Abuse Prevention

ROGERS, AR -- Glow sticks, fluorescent-colored clothes and glow in the dark t-shirts all for Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The Children's Advocacy Center of Benton County held its 14th Annual Glow Run on Friday afternoon. There was a 400 yard dash, 5K run and 1 mile walk, which all kicked off at the Frisco Stage in downtown Rogers. Live music was blasting while supporters laced up their sneakers and hit the pavement.

"We're hoping to shine a light on issues of child abuse and this gives us the perfect opportunity to reach so many," said Jolana Aibangbee, Director of Development.

"This is something that happens in any community so we're just here to shine a light on those realities and to let our community know that we're here and we're providing those services for these children and their families," said Natalie Tibbs, Assistant Director and sexual assault nurse examiner.

Last year, the Children's Advocacy Center opened 624 cases of child abuse. To learn more about the services they offer, CLICK HERE.
