The Montgomery County Commissioners proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Montgomery County and recognized the exceptional work of the staff of the Office of Children & Youth and the innovative prevention efforts utilized to support children and families in our County.
The Commissioners recognized SuperKIDS of Montgomery County, Inc. as one such innovative program. SuperKIDS supports educational and cultural enrichment programs not typically covered by traditional funding for children known to the Office of Children & Youth. Since its inception in 1994, SuperKIDS has provided over $1.5 million dollars to over 7,500 children.
In conjunction with Child Abuse Prevention Month, SuperKIDS will be having its very first “Run For The KIDS,” a 5K Run / 1 M Walk on April 22, 2017 at 9:00 am at beautiful Norristown Farm Park. SuperKIDS’ goal is to bring increased attention and awareness to the devastating issue of child abuse and provide a focus on both child abuse prevention and childhood enrichment for our most vulnerable children. There will be music, refreshments, an awards ceremony and lots of fun! Please consider running, walking, and/or sponsoring! For additional information, go to www.RunForTheKIDSMontco.org
