RYE, N.Y. -- April Child's "Strengthening Families One Step at a Time Walk-a-thon" is planned at Rye Playland on Sunday, April 26.
Children, families, friends and colleagues can participate in a 5K walk or a half-mile stroll, featuring activities and entertainment. Registered walkers will get a tee shirt, a goody bag, refreshments and prizes.
The walk-a-thon raises awareness about preventing child abuse and neglect in Westchester County for April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month. The agency's new name "April’s Child" (previously the Child Abuse Prevention Center) emphasizes the 90 percent success rate its has in helping parents create a loving and nurturing environment for their children.
Proceeds from the Walk-a-thon go directly to help fund April’s Child’s programs and services, which include a home visiting Parent Aide Program, a 24/7 Parent HelpLine, Parenting Groups and Workshops, and a Speakers' Bureau.
All community members are encouraged to participate and make a difference in a child’s life by walking, creating a team, donating or sponsoring the event.
