Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota
On Saturday, April 13th, 2013 the Rice Women of Today held their first 5K Run/Walk for Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota. We were able to provide a beautiful event t-shirt done and medals for everyone that participated in addition to medals for top finishers. We also had concessions and a free children’s event.

We also received a Minnesota Blue Ribbon Award for this event.
