A 5K race benefiting the Childhood Language Center has been rescheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25.
The City of Charleston has moved its Independence Day "rain delay" race to 8 a.m. at Virginia and 31st Street, behind CAMC Memorial, according to a city press release from the Childhood Language Center.
Registration starts at 7 a.m., and prizes will be awarded at 9:30 a.m.
Proceeds of the 5K race, will go towards the Childhood Language Center, which is a nonprofit whose mission is to provide important services to children in West Virginia who have autism, Aspergers, speech and language challenges and hearing impairments, said Executive Director Holly Martin in a press release.
"The Childhood Language Center appreciates the generosity of the City of Charleston," Martin said. "The Center relies on donations such as these in order to provide care to West Virginia children, without cost to the family. No family has ever received a bill for our service."
The Aug. 25 race will take place on a flat course. Refreshments will be provided. Registration is $20 before Aug. 20, and $25 on race day.
