WeCANclimb celebrates the spirit of Wild, Wonderful West Virginia and honors the healing journey abused children make with help from caring professionals. This year’s event was held September 29, 2018 at the Kanawha State Forest. In addition to the 2.5-Mile ‘Wild Trail Hike’ and 1 Mile ‘Mild Trail Hike’, this year’s event also featured a timed 5k Trail Run.

A special thank you to all of our sponsors including, A2U, Lumos Networks, Preston & Salango, Hilliard Lyons, Children First LLC, Kathryn Lester, Byrd for WV and Rheumatology Associates, PLLC.
The CAMC Women and Children’s Hospital Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) is a child-friendly facility with staff that works to provide children and families professional, compassionate care in order to reduce the trauma often experienced by children that are victims of abuse. Rather than having a child taken from agency to agency to endure multiple interviews, the CAC model brings the system to the child for an effective, child-centered, healing process. The CAC works within a multidisciplinary model that includes child protection, law enforcement and other treatment professionals with the goal of facilitating healing for the child. Families are never charged for services at the CAC.
