Cherish All Children Winter Walk

February 11-29: Your Time & Place!

On Super Bowl Sunday, February 11, let’s kick-off our commitment to protect children and youth! Walk, run, ski, swim (?) — let’s face it, it’s an unusual winter! Whatever activity you choose, we invite you to support our vision of raising healthy generations free from sexual exploitation.

  • Receive a Cherish All Children beanie or baseball cap with your donation of $25 or greater.
  • Help us raise $5,000 while enjoying a solo, family, or community activity.
  • Send us your pics, or post to social media using #CherishAllChildren5K (adding to our virtual 5K victories!)

Donate now, so we can send your Cherish All Children beanie(s) or cap(s) today. Don’t need any merch? That’s okay, get together in your community to walk and share with others how you are working to support the safety of young people.

Please email Joy McElroy if you have any questions.
