2019 Champions for Children Walk

Saturday, June 8, 2019

2114 Lowell Park Road dixon, IL

On Saturday, June 8th, 2019,  superheroes of all shapes, sizes and strengths will be descending upon Lowell Park in Dixon for the 11th annual Champions for Children Walk and we would like YOU to be a part of it! 

It has been an exciting and progressive year for Shining Star Children’s Advocacy Center, and we are proud to announce the implementation of many new and amazing initiatives.  Efforts to provide increased trauma focused therapy services, community outreach, as well as child abuse prevention and awareness initiatives are the guiding mission of our organization, and because of support such as yours the VOICES OF OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING HEARD AND BELIEVED!  It takes a strong community of protectors to create an environment that best meets all of the needs of child victims of abuse and their non-offending caregivers.  It is with much gratitude that all of us at Shining Star want to say thank you to you, our superheroes, for believing in our vision and core values.  The staff, Board of Directors, and dedicated volunteers of Shining Star work tirelessly to ensure that children have a safe place to share their experience and begin to heal.  Please know that the contributions we raise from this walk go directly to providing services to child victims and their non-offending caregivers, and with your continued support and dedication we are changing lives.   

Please join us in helping abused children by sponsoring this fantastic event!  If you would like to help but cannot be a sponsor this year, we hope that you will consider registering to walk with us to show your support for the children in our community. 

Check in on the day of the walk begins at 9:00 a.m. at the top of Lowell Park and the walk will begin at 10:00 a.m.  The kids villian chase will have two heats, heat #1 ages 5 and under, heat #2 ages 6-10, will take place before the start of the walk.  The walk is a three mile fun, non-competitive event, and afterwards we invite all participants to stay and enjoy a free lunch.  

If you have any questions or would like to request a presentation for your business or group about Shining Star and the work that we do, please feel free to contact me at 815-284-1891 or jfriday@shiningstarcac.org. Thank you again for considering our request and we look forward to working with you.
