The Lee County Youth Development Center held its annual Child Abuse Awareness Walk Thursday, April 27, from 2 to 3 p.m. The event was moved to the campus’s arts and fitness center due to rain. Attendees wore blue and white in solidarity with the cause. Facts regarding child abuse, a poem reading and other performances were given, along with a balloon release to commemorate victims of child abuse/neglect. Executive Director Laura Cooper (pictured above) gave the opening remarks.
