Lauren’s Walk 2015

Lauren’s Kids spent 3 days walking through Palm Beach County spreading awareness about childhood sexual abuse. Walkers included, victims, advocates, law enforcement, and family members; this year the youngest “walker”, a 4 month old baby girl, also joined to show her support.

Lauren

“Lauren Book, Lauren’s Kids’ founder and CEO, was a victim of childhood sexual abuse for six years at the hands of her female nanny. Lauren has worked to turn her horrific personal experience into a vehicle to prevent childhood sexual abuse and help other survivors heal.

The organization also leads an annual, statewide “Walk in My Shoes” awareness walk across the state of Florida – 1,500 miles from Key West to Tallahassee.

The foundation has helped advocate for the passage of nearly two dozen laws to support survivors and protect children from predators. The ultimate goal is to prevent sexual abuse through education and awareness, and to help survivors heal with guidance and support.”  — Courtesy of http://www.Laurenskids.org
