Note: This is a child-friendly event, but all minors must be accompanied by adults.
Why do we walk? Child abuse in the U.S. is reported every 10 seconds. The effects can last a lifetime. The FosterWalks are part of a national campaign to build awareness of child abuse, its lifelong effects, and inspiration for healing.
By joining our FosterWalk events, it benefits our chapters and helps support personal and professional growth for foster care alumni. Funds raised empower foster care alumni to overcome patterns of trauma through peer support, leadership development and advocacy.
Costs: The walk is free and there are no fundraising minimums, but donations are welcome. Here's how you can raise $200 in 10 days ...
•Donate $20 to yourself ($20)
•Ask your partner/roomate for $20 ($40)
