CCETN’s Children’s Emergency Shelter and C.H.A.P. programs

The Race for Kids Virtual 5K and Family Walk is an opportunity for you or the whole family to combat child abuse in Knoxville and greater East Tennessee. Join us in supporting CCETN’s Children’s Emergency Shelter (CES) and Columbus Home Assisting Parents Programs (C.H.A.P.).






Run the Race for Kids to combat child abuse in Knoxville and greater East Tennessee! With the option to participate in a virtual 5K or family walk, this fundraiser race supports our Children’s Emergency Shelter in Knoxville and the Columbus Home Assisting Parents (C.H.A.P.) program of East Tennessee. This is a perfect event for individual runners, groups, or families.




CES meets the unique needs for a stable, nurturing environment for children awaiting a custody decision and is the only shelter of its kind in East Tennessee. Our C.H.A.P. program is a home-based support service that provides education, crisis intervention, and case management for families whose parenting abilities are impacted by life stressors. Last year C.H.A.P and CES combined served nearly 500 children and families!
