Child Abuse Prevention Month
The month of April is nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month.
In 2020, we created a billboard with Champaign County CASA, Champaign County Children's Advocacy Center, and Stephen's Family YMCA to bring awareness, encourage advocacy, and recruit volunteers to help in our collective fight against child abuse. A variety of third party fundraisers are hosted in the month of April as part of our Partners in Prevention intiative!
Miles for Smiles
The Illinois Marathon's 2021 Race Weekend is officially set for Thursday, April 29 to Saturday, May 1, 2021.
Check back here at a later date to register for the 2021 Illinois Marathon Race Weekend.
Every year, we ask runners to join our Miles for Smiles team. In doing so, they fund raise on behalf of the Nursery, leading up to the race of their choice. "Fund-Racers" receive a Crisis Nursery Miles for Smiles team t-shirt when they raise at least $200. One of our biggest supporters for this event is the Marching Illini Sousaphones who run an entire 5k with their instruments!
THird Party Fundraisers
A third party fundraiser is an outside group or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit Crisis Nursery.
If you have an idea or plan for an event that will benefit Crisis Nursery, please reach out! We ask that all events are approved by Crisis Nursery in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of the Crisis Nursery name and our commitment to raise the necessary funds to fulfill our mission in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
