Red Lake Hosts Child Abuse Prevention Walk

Hundreds of children and adults on the Red Lake Indian Reservation walked nearly five miles to raise awareness of child abuse prevention.

Sponsored by the Red Lake Family & Children Services, the Nation’s division responsible for the well-being and welfare of its children, the annual Child Abuse Prevention Walk kicked off on April 26 at 9 a.m. and culminated with a ceremony at the Seven Clans Casino in Northern Minnesota. The line of walkers stretched nearly a half mile.

The annual walk honors National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April. At the casino, lunch was served to all participating walkers and some elders, who were bussed in from the Jourdain/Perpich Center.

The reservation’s elementary schools also hosted events organized by the staff at the Red Lake Family & Children Services.  At Ponemah Elementary, Red Lake Elementary and the Mission Schools, staff handed out the same T-shirts that the walkers received. They also held drawings at each school for two bicycles and MP3 players donated by individuals and Wal-Mart.
