Break out your running shoes, stretch out your legs, grab your four-legged running buddy and make the move to stop child abuse. The Child Advocacy Center of Putnam County is proud to announce that registration is open for the annual One Too Many NY 5K to end child abuse and will be held from September 16th-18th, 2022. Get moving and run for the kids because one child abused is “ONE TOO MANY.”
This virtual fundraiser is open to individuals of all ages from any town, any city, or any state. Participants may choose their preferred exercise (run, walk, bike, hike etc.) to complete the 5K (3.1 miles). Individuals can participate at their own pace, on their own route, in teams or by themselves, wherever and whenever between Friday, September 16th and Sunday, September 18th. Register online and select Putnam County at https://onetoomany/eventbrite.com by August 12, 2022, for a guaranteed race t-shirt. With a $40 registration fee, participants receive a One Too Many NY 5K t-shirt, a run/walk bib, and a chance to win some exciting prizes.

The Child Advocacy Center of Putnam County is here to support and protect child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and domestic violence.
One of our participants said it best, “I haven’t run too much lately, had a few nagging aches and pains. But it was a good reminder of how much suffering kids go through and how a few aches are nothing compared to the pain of kids who have been abused. Thank you for organizing this event and the great work you do.”
One in ten children will be abused before their 18th birthday. The vital work of the Child Advocacy Center of Putnam County needs your help to continue to serve this community within a safe, family-friendly environment offering prevention education, advocacy, justice, and a path to healing.
