MERRILLVILLE | The annual child abuse prevention walk and 5K run is April 26 at Hidden Lake Park in Merrillville.
The Royalty Race is an opportunity to support Prevent Child Abuse Lake County, a volunteer organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect.
Runners and walkers will be joined by dancers, live music, balloon animals, a disc jockey and face painters to entertain participants. Children who take part will receive a crown to wear during the festivities.
The cost for walking or running is $10 per individual or $40 for a team of five. All proceeds benefit Prevent Child Abuse Lake County. The funds support education, increased awareness and advocacy.
