BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) — Hundreds laced up their shoes to take strides to prevent child abuse.

The “Walking to Stop Child Abuse” 5K walk/run was held Saturday morning at Beavercreek High School.

The run was an opportunity to support survivors of child abuse and domestic violence.

The event was sponsored by the Family Violence Prevention Center of Greene County, Greene County Children Services, Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and Xenia Chrome Divas.

All proceeds from the 5K will go toward funding programs to prevent and to end child and family violence.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
