Sheridan House 5k walk to benefit kids, families

Organizers of The Sheridan House’s fifth annual 5k run, “Stepping out for Kids and Families,” have announced the event will take place Saturday, Feb. 2

It will be at 9 a.m. at Sheridan House’s main campus at 1700 S. Flamingo Road in Davie, Fla.

In the past, the event has attracted several hundred people who both run and walk to benefit the organization. Organizers expect about 200 people this year and hope to raise $90,000.

There is no cost or minimum donation to participate, but in order to receive prizes and a T-shirt, the participant must raise or donate a minimum of $50.

Sheridan House’s mission is to offer community services for children and families to meet their potential despite challenging circumstances at home or with their finances. Its services include “Parenting on Purpose” which offers parents practical advice via podcasts, a blog, radio broadcasts and seminars; counseling centers for couples, families, children and individuals; a Single Moms’ Ministry that provides food, clothing, furniture, financial assistance and automobiles when possible to single mothers; and children’s homes.

Individuals may register for the event now at
