Kids Mud Run / The Lord's Gym Oroville | June 1

3570 Oro Bangor Highway, Oroville | 9am-3pm

 

The annual Lord’s Gym Kids Mud Run is FREE. The Kids Mud Run is a mile-long, obstacle course-style race for children ages 4-12.

Kids will run, jump, swing and crawl through over 20+ exhilarating obstacles--not to mention mud! The race is divided into three separate age groups (4-6, 7-9 & 10-12) with age-appropriate obstacles so that children can run together their friends and peers of the same age.

This allows the race to be safe enough for little ones while also challenging the pre-teens. A special school competition, know as the “Superhero School Bell,” allows children to rack up points for their school by taking part and dressing up in their school’s colors.

Registration is FREE before May 30th! So make sure to register today and save your spot for the most exciting Kids Mud Run yet! 

In between races kids, will enjoy Mud Fest with inflatables, food and carnival style attractions. Mud Fest will be running 9am-3pm at an additional cost.
There will not be a main adult race for 2019, due to resource and manpower being diverted into programs to support #CampFire victims.

 - Who or what you saw;
 - When you saw it;
 - Where it occurred; and
 - Why it's suspicious.

Become a CASA Volunteer!

NVCSS CASA will be holding two CASA training sessions in early 2018.
Training in Shasta County [Redding] begins on Wednesday, January 10 and will be held in the CASA Center at NVCSS at 2400 Washington Avenue.
Butte County training [Chico] begins on Thursday, February 1 and will take place at
our office in Chico.


CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. CASA volunteers are definitely superheroes for the work they do for these children!

Download the volunteer application by visiting the NVCSS website: http://www.nvcss.org/casa
Application deadline for Shasta’s training is January 4; Butte’s deadline is January 27.

Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.

Become a Foster Parent

CHANGE A LIFE, BECOME A FOSTER PARENT!
