ONTARIO – The Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery held its 10th annual Relief Run on Saturday, September 11, and no one left with a clean shirt. Runners and volunteers were bombarded with colorful dyes at the start and finish line.
Admission was $ 30 for individuals and $ 100 for teams, with proceeds going to general relief nursery funds. The nursery provides advocacy and preventive care for families at risk in the region.
“Every child should leave our program thinking, ‘I belong to the planet’. Everything will be fine, ”said Kathie Collins, former CEO.
The crèche helps families find accommodation and offers programs such as classroom therapy sessions and home visits. It is currently open for registrations and interested families are encouraged to call 541-823-2526 and ask for Kim.
