April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Child and Family Support Center is wrapping up the month with two important activities. Monday night is Dine Out Against Child Abuse at several local restaurants. The Center’s development coordinator Leigh Dean says up to 20 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Child and Family Support from those who dine at Cafe Saboor, Firehouse Pizzeria, Iron Gate Grill, Texas Roadhouse and LeNonne. The event continues Tuesday night at Angie’s.Dean says another major event is the popular Race Against Child Abuse which is coming up on Saturday May 1.”We have a 10k, a 5k and a one mile route,” Dean says. “We would like to invite runners, from people who are in training to families who are just looking to have a good time. It’s an excellent event. It’s a lot of fun. “The race will be in Wellsville and we would like to thank Wellsville for helping us with this for the last four years.”Dean says all of the proceeds from the 9:30 a.m. race go to support the Child and Family Support Center in its mission to strengthen families and protect children.
