Third Annual WHAS Crusade for Children 5K Run/Walk for the Kids scheduled for Saturday, August 26

The Bardstown City Schools Department of Special Education and the Nelson County Schools Department of Special Education would love to see you at the 3rd Annual “Run for the Kids”, WHAS Crusade for Children 5K. This charity run will be August 26, 2017 at Bernheim Forest, with all proceeds earned donated to the WHAS Crusade for Children.

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 the Bardstown and Nelson County community have benefited from the Crusade’s generosity. In the past, area 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 and Nelson County Schools have received more than $160,000.00 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!
