The Rockin Chocolate Marathon is proud to partner with Reach-A-Child. Every volunteer will log their hours and those hours will be paid to Reach-A-Child. When you are on the course or crossing the finish line, remember to thank your volunteers, without them, this event would not be possible.
Founded in 2007, REACH-A-Child™ has worked with First Responders statewide to make sure that they have the necessary tool to reach children-in-crisis — a book that is age appropriate* to redirect the child’s attention from the crisis at hand and allows them an emotional escape from their fears. Whether a child is in an accident, a victim of domestic disturbance, or going through a trauma, the power of a book and a positive interaction with a First Responder can go a long way towards “making things right” again!
*Children, ages 2 to 12 years old, are served by this program.
