No Child Wet Behind Fundraiser May 21 in Fountain

Proceeds of the event will benefit No Child Wet Behind. No Child Wet Behind’s (NCWB) mission is to get diapers to those in need via monetary donations as well as diaper donations.

The family-friendly day will start with a 5k run/walk, followed by activities for all ages, including a family fun run. Several participating organizations will be represented that day, with various ways to give and get involved.

Diapers (even partially opened packs) will be accepted the day at the event. There are currently drop boxes for diapers at various locations around the area including the lobby of the Fountain Police Department located at 222 N. Santa Fe Ave. Persons can also donate by calling 719-581-9041
