The third annual “Steuben County Color Walk…to prevent child abuse” will be held June 16 in Pulteney Square in Bath.
The family-friendly event is set to begin at 9 a.m., followed by a mile-long course that will begin at 10:15 a.m. The cost of registration is $3.
The event is intended to be a very visible reminder to county residents that they can all do something to prevent child abuse. Volunteers will be located around the course where they will toss non-toxic colored paint powder at participants.
Organizers recommend participants wear light-colored clothes for the most color effect. Eye and nose protection is recommended for walkers and will be available for $1. T-shirts will also be available for $5.
The event is sponsored by the Youth Bureau, Prevent Child Abuse Steuben Task Force, Nelson Service Center, Keuka Insurance Group, Inc., and the Corning Police Benevolent Association.
