Walk With Courage Honors Child Abuse Victims

Posted: Updated:
Law enforcement officers nationwide say they get a report of child abuse every 10 seconds. The Fargo Police Department says last year alone they investigated 180 cases of child abuse and neglect.

That’s why Fargo Police Chief Keith Ternes helped kicked off the Walk with Courage today. Dozens walked at the Scheels Arena to raise awareness of child abuse and to honor the children who are victims.

Organizers say many abuse cases don't get reported. and they're hoping events like this will change that.

"Children come forward at the red river advocacy center to tell their story, to tell their account of what happened to them with regard to abuse that they have suffered, and it takes such great courage for them to do that," says Anna Frissell, director of red river children’s advocacy center.

If you notice or suspect a child is being abused be sure to report it to police immediately.
