CAPES For Kids Run

All children deserve a hero; abused children deserve super heroes!

10th Annual CAPES For Kids Run

5k/10k/Kids Fun Run

Saturday, May 1, 2021

Join us for our 10th annual CAPES For Kids Run!


The CARE House of the Pee Dee is hosting their 10th annual 5k/10k/Kids Fun Run, formally known as the Carver C.A.P. Run. This Run was started in 2011 after the death of a local 3-year-old, Tylashia Grant, who was subjected to physical abuse and neglect. This event is held in memory of the life that was lost and in honor of every child that is subjected to abuse.


All proceeds go towards helping the CARE House of the Pee Dee continue their efforts to provide investigative, therapeutic, medical and advocacy services to children who have been abused and their families. CAPES (Child Abuse Prevention Education & Support) for Kids Run is asking you to take a stand against child abuse!

COVID-19 Safety Plan

  • As of January 2021, Briggs Elementary and FSD1 are not allowing anyone indoors, so portable restrooms and hand washing stations will be available. This, however, is subject to change based on FSD1’s standards.

  • All participants are asked not to attend the race if they have symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Hand sanitizer stations will be in place. All staff and volunteers will be wearing masks.

  • Pre-race packet pick-up is encouraged in order to maintain social distancing. Packet pick-up will be extended in order to offer more opportunities for runners to pick up race packets.

  • Social distancing and/or masks are encouraged at the start/finish line.
