Children, Parents, and Staff Finish Strong in 5K!

On Saturday, March 10th, 15 children, foster parents and staff of Southmountain Children and Family Services participated in a 5K at Catawba Meadows Park and finished with great success!  Of these 15 runners, 10 won medals in their class, including Taylor Parsons, Lynnae Hensley, and several of our children.  One of our teenage boys finished very strong and came in fourth overall in the 5K.  A few of our children with asthma ran their first 5K ever, and  Southmountain’s 9 year old with cerebral palsy also ran and finished her first 1 mile race!  Proceeds from the race went to support South Mountain Baptist Camp who provides scholarships for underprivileged children so they can attend a week of summer camp.
