mile-long course beginning at 10:15AM The cost of registration is $3 per participant. Children under 5 are

The event is intended to be a very visible reminder county residents can all do something to prevent child
abuse, with volunteers located on the course where they will toss a non-toxic colored paint powder at the
walkers.

protection for participants is recommended and available for $1. T-shirts are available for $5.
