The 8th Annual Lauren’s Kids Walk in My Shoes will be coming to Pasco County on Tuesday, March 13th. The walk will start and end at Pasco Kids First Children’s Advocacy Center, located at 7344 Little Road in New Port Richey. The walk will be approximately 6 miles with a half way point at Pasco-Hernando State College. The walk is in honor of the 42 million survivors of child sexual abuse in the U.S. today. Registration starts at 3pm and the walk will begin at 4pm.
Walkers can register for $15 at www.LaurensKids.org/Walk. You can join the Pasco Kids First team, create your own or register as an individual. Proceeds benefit Lauren’s Kids.
Lauren’s Kids will be presenting Pasco Kids First with care kits to be distributed to kids and teens served by the Children’s Advocacy Center. The Kona Ice truck will be selling their famous shaved ice and have created a special teal blue Lauren’s Kids flavor for the event. They are also donating 20% of proceeds back to Lauren’s Kids. Pasco Kids First will also be giving tours of the Children’s Advocacy Center before, during and after the walk.
Did you know? 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 5 boys will become a victim of sexual abuse before their 18th birthday…. BUT 95% of child sexual abuse is preventable through education and awareness. Together, we can prevent abuse, protect childhood and empower survivors. Come walk with us to raise awareness in your community and stand up against child sexual abuse. Lauren’s Kids Walk in my shoes is a walk from Tallahassee to Key West taking place from March 10th – 24th.
The Bay Bridges Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) will ride alongside walkers in their continued commitment to empower abused children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live.
