Conway Cradle Care is hosting its first ever "Rockin' the Cradle 5K/1K" fundraising race at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 14 at the First Presbyterian Church park and Tucker Creek bike path.
The main goal of the event is to benefit the childcare and mentoring programs that serve adolescent parents who are continuing their education.
Registration will include participation in the 5K, event t-shirt, swag bags (including the chance to win prizes), and a finisher medal.
The fun run will not be a chip-timed event, however runners will be able to view their finish times at the finish line.
Participants are encouraged to dress up in their best rock & roll costumes.
The 1K is open to participants of any age at no additional cost.
Strollers and leashed pets are welcome and snacks, water, music, and goodie bags will be provided.

Conway Cradle Care (CCC) was established in 1995 to assist teen parents who were forced to drop out of school due to lack of support for their situation and/or lack of money for childcare.
CCC started as a mission of First Presbyterian Church of Conway. To become eligible for grants and donations, as well as to expand programming, CCC gained 501(c)(3) status as an independent nonprofit organization. First Presbyterian Church is still a strong supporter of the mission of Cradle Care, and houses CCC at no expense to the organization. CCC continues an ongoing partnership with the United Way of Central AR, Arkansas Community Foundation, & CAPCA. CCC is supported by local businesses, community organizations, professionals, churches, and individuals. The support from the community continues to the present.
The Board is a working board and is made up of volunteers representing diverse segments of the community.
