Run to Benefit Children’s Advocacy Center

  “We are so excited to host a family-oriented, healthy activity to promote wellness and healthy habits during the holidays while also raising money for such a worthy cause,” says Libby Bryson, Marketing Director for Longview Regional Medical Center.

This year’s beneficiary is the Children’s Advocacy Center of Gregg and Harrison Counties (CACGHC), a non-profit organization whose mission is to lessen the emotional trauma to children who have been victims of sexual or physical abuse or witnesses to a violent crime. The CACGHC provides forensic interviews of the children in a child-friendly place to assist law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of their cases. In addition, the CACGHC coordinates the efforts of law enforcement, child protective services, prosecutors, counselors and therapists to provide healing and recovery to young victims and their families. The 2nd Annual Healthy Woman Wreath Run has received support from many local corporations and individuals in our community. (See attached page 2)
