2017 Walk for Prevention

Annual Child Abuse Prevention Month Walk

This annual event is a celebration of all the little things we are doing in the community to keep our children safe. The national symbol for April's Child Abuse Prevention Month is the blue pinwheel. Join the community as we gather for this family-friendly event to plant the largest pinwheel garden in South Carolina. Children will receive two pinwheels - one to plant and one to take home.

*New for 2017: Participants and teams are encouraged to come dressed in team t-shirts or costumes. The team with the best outfit will win a prize!
