The Child Advocacy Center is celebrating Child Abuse Awareness Month with the Hometown Heroes Walk for Children on Friday morning, April 21 at the Murfreesboro Civic Plaza, downtown on the square.  Registration will begin at 11:00 a.m., speakers at 11:45 p.m., and the Walk will begin at 12 noon.  New this year, there will be shuttles from the Child Advocacy Center to the Civic Plaza at 10:30, 10:45, 11:00, and 11:15 a.m. 


The event will conclude with a picnic lunch at the Child Advocacy Center, located at 1040 Samsonite Blvd.  The menu includes hamburgers, hotdogs, pork tenderloin, baked beans, potato salad, vegetables and dips, fruit kabobs, delicious homemade desserts, and the famous chocolate room.  Local businesses that are contributing to the picnic lunch include PATCO’s grilled meat, Double Tree’s cookies, O’Charley’s pies, Macaroni Grill’s desserts, and Zaxby’s chicken tenders.


"The Hometown Heroes Walk for Children is a wonderful way for our community to show their support for child abuse victims.  The only thing that would make it better would be if YOU would lace up your tennis shoes and join us,” said Child Advocacy Center director Sharon De Boer.
