"20th Anniversary" 5k and WALK FOR CHILDREN for Children | Montpelier

The 20th anniversary  WALKS and RUN FOR CHILDREN  provides us with an opportunity to alert Vermonters to the need for a community commitment to child abuse prevention. Sponsors like McDonald’s and National Life have stepped up to help PCAVT send the important message that there is something that everyone can do to help. You don’t have to be a parent to care for the future of Vermont’s children. Every dollar you help raise in the 2019 WALKS and RUN FOR CHILDREN helps support and inform the many Vermonters who are parents, guardians, teachers, and child care professionals. As a united, educated, and supported community, we can better prevent the physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional maltreatment, and neglect of our children.

Vermont individuals, families, businesses, and organizations will step out to prevent child abuse in Montpelier and Rutland. We invite you to join us, to show your support and to further the mission. Together we will prevent child abuse, step by step by step. Food, snacks, water and tee shirts will be available for all WALKERS.

There will be a special guest in Montpelier : John Gailmore, Vermont singer, songwriter and entertainer! There will be team prizes for the top three teams at each WALK that raise the most in pledges. We have a wonderful assortment of raffle prizes at all WALKS. The registration is open at 8:00 and the WALKS and RUN start at 10:00.
