About Child AdvocatesThe goal of the Philadelphia Bar Association 5K Run/5K Walk is to benefit the work of the Support Center for Child Advocates. The agency will use the 2006 event proceeds to support their vital mission of service on behalf of needy children in Philadelphia.

The agency teams dedicated volunteer attorneys with staff social workers and lawyers, and together they represent their child clients in the city's courtrooms, securing their safety and the services they need in order to heal. Each year, Child Advocates serves nearly 700 children--helping them testify in court against their abusers, finding safe, permanent places for them to live, and making sure that each child is in school and recieving appropriate care and treatment, Child Advocates welcomes volunteers to provide legal or medical services and to participate in fundraising efforts and their annual toy drive.
