The Shelby County Children’s Advocacy Center would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2017 What-A-Melon 5K. Thank you for showing up on a hot and humid day to support the services our agency provides to child victims of abuse. We would also like to thank the Rotary Club for organizing the run, all volunteers who gave of their time, and the sponsors whose generosity made the event possible: Boles Feed Company, JBA Financial Services, and Farmers State Bank. We truly appreciate your commitment to making a difference in lives of children in our community.
The mission of the Shelby County Children’s Advocacy Center is to promote the emotional and physical healing of child abuse victims by uniting the efforts of public agencies and enlisting community support to optimize the prevention, detection, assessment, investigation, and prosecution of child abuse cases.
