Child Advocacy Program to host 8th Annual Step Up For Kids 5K Run/Walk


On May 15, 2021, The Child Advocacy Program (CAP) will host their 8th annual Step Up For Kids 5K Run/Walk at Cassadaga Beach. CAP’s mission is to end child abuse in Chautauqua County, and when abuse occurs, CAP coordinates a community response to bring healing, hope and justice to these children and families. The Step Up for Kids Run is an awareness event to raise funds to support CAP’s counseling and advocacy programs, prevention trainings, forensic interviews and medical evaluations. CAP has two offices, one at 405 West Third Street in Jamestown and another at 425 Main Street in Dunkirk.

CAP encourages community members to pre-register for the 5KRun/Walk as there will be no registration available the day of the race.
