Local pediatrician Dr. Robert Tagher to run 100 miles to raise money for abused children and NKYCAC

Dr. Robert Tagher of Pediatrics of Florence will run 100 miles through the Florida Keys to benefit Northern Kentucky children who have been abused and neglected.

Tagher is competing in Keys 100 ultramarathon, a 100-mile-long race from Key Largo to Key West, on May 21 and 22. He’s collecting sponsorships to benefit the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center (NKYCAC).

NKYCAC provides a coordinated response to child abuse in a child-focused environment, offering prevention, evaluation and treatment to children and families. Last year, NKYCAC served more than 800 children in Northern Kentucky who were physically, sexually and emotionally abused.

Tagher serves on the Board of Directors at NKYCAC. He successfully completed the 100-mile run in 2017 and raised over $20,000 for the Center. His goal is to raise more money this time.

“I absolutely love to run, so being able to do it with others and for others means a lot to me,” said Dr. Tagher. “I think this adventure at the Keys 100 will mean even more if the money we raise can be used to better serve the children who need the Advocacy Center. I hope people can sponsor me because when the going gets tough on race day – and it will – knowing that people made sacrifices is what keeps me going.”
