WHO: In support of the Child Witness Centre. Now in our 35th year, the Child Witness Centre provides support, education and advocacy through the criminal justice system for children and youth – and their families – who are victims or witnesses of abuse or crime.
WHAT: The 2nd Annual Hat Walk at Cambridge Ribfest – where walkers of all ages will join Jack Sparrow for a leisurely, fully-accessible stroll through Cambridge’s picturesque Riverside Park. It’s a celebration of family, friends and coworkers whose fundraising efforts will support the Child Witness Centre. Walk as little or as long, as fast or as slow, as you like!
WHEN: Sunday, August 12th. Opening ceremonies begin at 4pm, but come early to enjoy all of the family fun that the Cambridge Ribfest offers. Admission and parking are free!
WHY: Your fundraising efforts will support our work in the Child and Youth Advocacy Centre (CYAC) – a child and youth-friendly place where allegations of abuse are investigated by specialized professionals who ensure that young people and their families are supported through the process. As part of the support offered by the CYAC, Advocates from the Child Witness Centre walk with these brave children and youth, and their families, connecting them to services and helping them have a voice and fostering healing, hope and wellbeing.
