Lassen Family Service’s 8th annual Walk-A-Mile event, a mile-long color walk around the Diamond Mountain Speedway to support survivors of sexual assault and child abuse, will be held on Saturday, April 24th at the Lassen County Fairgrounds.
LFS hosts the event annually at the end of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week to make the community aware of the prevalence of these crimes and to provide information on the support services offered in Lassen County.
The motto of this year’s National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities.” and this years’ Walk-A-Mile will be a community educational training on the prevalence of sexual assault and child abuse. The event also raises essential funds for LFS’ Child Trauma Therapy program.
The Child Trauma Therapy program provides therapy to children who cannot receive services due to lack of insurance, transportation or an inability to find a therapist. This program is for children between the ages of 3 and 18 who have been victims of, or have witnessed, traumatic events.
