Lucy Daniels Center Celebrates 5k and Teaching Garden

Community 5k Run

Lucy Daniels Center’s first Inside Out 5k Run/Walk was held May 10 in celebration of National Children’s Health Month. More than 200 people participated in the event, which raised $30,000 for the center’s mental health programs.

The center is also teaming up with volunteers from BB&T’s Lighthouse Project to complete the final phase of the Lucy Daniels Center Teaching Garden by laying pavers for walking paths and assisting in the construction of a greenhouse. Associates from BB&T Cary will help build an outdoor classroom and horticultural therapy site for children and families who are being served through one of the center’s programs. The garden will also serve as a community source for fresh produce that will promote healthier food choices and offer assistance through food pantry donations. Learn more at
