The Virginia Beach Department of Human Services' Pendleton Child Services Center and a group called "Families for a Lifetime" are hosting "Celebrating Children" a free, family-focused event full of fitness and fun at Mount Trashmore in Va Beach on Saturday April 30, between 9 am and 1 pm. There are things to do for people of all ages including a 1.5 mile Family Walk-Run, kid-friendly games and activities, live entertainment, and supporting child abuse prevention. "Celebrating Children" is part of Families for a Lifetime’s and the City of Virginia Beach’s campaign to promote happy, healthy families and children. Families for a Lifetime is a partnership between city agencies and local, nonprofit family-centered organizations including the Public Health Department, GrowSmart, and Fleet and Family Services. The partnership was developed to provide parents with education and support regarding child-rearing practices, and it strives to effectively convey information and ideas that create families for a lifetime.
