Event Description

Join us in our first Crossroads Youth & Family Services A Child's World 5k in Lawton on September 14th, 2024!  Bring your running shoes and your family out to run or walk the 5k at Elmer Thomas Park in Lawton, then stay for the Family Activities.
Founded by Cleveland County leaders in 1969, as the state's first emergency youth shelter, Crossroads Youth and Family Services, Inc. has expanded to provide support services for all ages from birth to adulthood. For over three decades, our nationally accredited and state-certified programs have helped children, youth, and families build healthy lifestyles, strong families, and caring communities. 
Why a 5k?  Crossroads Youth & Family Services’ mission is to support the healthy lifestyles and emotional well-being of children, youth and families through the provision of effective, community-based programs and services. Running outside could have benefits, like lessening feelings of loneliness and isolation, reducing the effects of stress, and helping with depression and anxiety.  SO COME OUT AND RUN WITH US! 
NOTE:  Event pricing increases as we get closer to the race so be sure to register early.
After the run, head over to the pavilion for additional activities and to learn more about Crossroads' mission and services.
