The first week of Child Abuse Prevention Month 2012 has New Jersey off to a great start! Pictures, events, and stories are pouring in to us, so we wanted to share back some of what you all are doing out there along with us.
The Kappa Delta Sorority at TCNJ held their Shamrock ‘N Run 5k back on March 24th at Mercer County Park once again this year. We hope to have some video up from the event soon, but in the meantime, here are the runners about to take off!
This past Wednesday, April 4th, was the National Day of Hope in honor of victims of child abuse. Prevent Child Abuse-New Jersey and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital held a candlelight ceremony at the Magic Fountain (located outside the hospital) at noon with the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital family. Check out their Facebook post for even more pictures and additional information about the day and event.
Finally, North Elementary located in Newport, MI sent along a great batch of photos for our annual pinwheel photo contest! Here is one with a pinwheel garden and their principal:
