The Percy and Donna Malone Child Safety Center invites walkers and runners of all ages, beginner-level and experienced alike, to participate in a charity 5K chip-timed race and 1M "Widdle Waddle" fun run to support children on the path to healing after abuse and trauma. Run our certified 5K route through charming downtown Arkadelphia, Arkansas to cross the finish line amid the fanfare of music and festivities. A separate course is reserved for families and teams wanting to participate in the "Widdle Waddle" fun run.

Not a runner or walker? That's ok, too! We are inviting participating individuals, organizations, and businesses to form their own teams that will race to raise sponsorship dollars for our children. Encourage your friends and colleagues on their health goals while supporting the youngest members of our world. You can financially sponsor a registered individual or team by contributing to their campaign to support healing. Regardless of the race-day results, you will be a winner in the eyes of the children you help! 

Individual race registration fees are:
$20 student (K12 or university with ID) 
$30 regular early registration (Guarantee your shirt/Discount by March 1 at noon)

$35 day-of-race registration, t-shirts on a first-come basis while supplies last

All registrations include lunch. Early registrations include a pre-ordered t-shirt. Day-of registrations include t-shirts on a first-come basis while supplies last.

Because we know today's children will lead us forward, we are "Quackin' Down" on child abuse in support of their healthy future!
