Third Annual Champions4Children State Walk set for May 15
GENEVA—In two months, walkers from across the state of Illinois will lace up for a statewide walk in support of the Kane County Child Advocacy Center and the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Illinois (CACI).

Established in 1994, the Kane County Child Advocacy Center coordinates investigation, prosecution and healing services for the over 1,400 children allegedly abused in Kane County each year.

CACI is the state network that helps local centers coordinate and provide a comprehensive response to child abuse throughout Illinois. To increase awareness, knowledge and education, the CACI announced the dates and locations of the third annual Champions4Children Walk, sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois.

The third annual Champions4Children Walk will be held on Saturday, May 15 and will bring public awareness about child abuse issues. Additionally, the Champions4Children Walk will increase knowledge about the services of local children’s advocacy centers and the difference these services make in a child’s life. The walk will help raise funds through pledges and sponsorships for the 28 children’s advocacy centers participating in the walk.
