Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, Foot of the Rockies, the City of Cheyenne and the Cheyenne Public Safety Center are hosting a free 5K run to raise awareness of crime victim's rights on April 28 at Lion's  Park in Cheyenne.

The race is being held in conjunction with the national focus on crime victim's rights through the month of April. The second week of the month was also National Crime Victim's Rights Week. CRMC spokeswoman Kathy Baker says the event is designed not only to raise awareness of the rights of crime victims but to let victims and everyone in the community know about some of the resources that are available for victims of crime.

A free informational fair will be held after the run until noon in the Kiwanis Community House in Lion's Park. Baker says people can pre-register at the CRMC website or at Foot of the Rockies at 1740 Dell Range Blvd. The first 200 people to register will get a free t-shirt.

Race-day registration will be from 8 a.m. until 8:45 a.m. at the Lion's Park Boathouse.

Race day giveaways are planned, and free water and snacks will be available for participants. All ages and ability levels are welcome, and strollers are permitted.
