It’s that time again, to Run and Walk for the lives of numerous children from child headed households. This year’s MILE FOR A CHILD 5K Run and Walk will be hosted by Cardinal Communications from Ball State University in Muncie, IN. Proceeds from the race will benefit at least 100 children from rural areas of Swaziland, chosen to participate in a “Race Day” event in Swaziland.
Proceeds from this year’s Mile for a Child will be used to host a “Race Day” in Swaziland, where children will be given a meal, clothing, shoes, and toys. During the “race,” student volunteers, and personnel from various Swazi nongovernmental organizations will walk with the children, advocating to change the lives of children from child headed households affected by HIV/AIDS.
