Ozark, MO - Saturday, June 29, 2013, was the Duck Waddle 5K hosted by LifePoint Church and the Sertoma Club.  Proceeds benefit the children of the Care to Learn fund in Ozark and Nixa, MO.  Care to Learn has touched the lives of over 11,000 children. In the Ozarks, 47% of students qualify for reduced price lunch and 27.3% of children are below the poverty level. Lack of proper hygiene is the number one reason for absences from school.  For thousands of Ozark and Nixa kids, education is an afterthought to survival. When basic needs go unmet, kids struggle to focus on studies. Worn out, poorly fitting clothes affect a kid's sense of belonging. Being made fun of leads to absenteeism and drop out. Poverty can alienate kids, making school a scary and lonely place.  These kids want to be accepted. Care to Learn's funds help schools meet the immediate needs of kids. We have the ability to do something about it.
