On Saturday, October 29th, The Family Tree will hold their 3rd Annual 5K run and 1.5-mile family walk at M&T Bank Stadium, an event benefiting their family strengthening services and programs.  

Last year, hundreds participated in the race, and we are now encouraging our readers to come together on October 29th and “Lace Up” to show our support ending child abuse and neglect in Maryland. With each step, we raise awareness about the critical problem of child abuse and the role we all play in supporting families to prevent abuse.
