About This Activity

 5th Annual Taking Steps to End Child Abuse 5K/1 Mile Walk

2015 will be the 5th year of the Taking Steps to End Child Abuse 5K/1Mile Walk.  The Taking Steps to End Child Abuse 5K/1 Mile Walk is held each year in memory of Duncan and Jack Leichtenberg and in celebration of their lives.  We invite the community to support Children’s Home + Aid’s Family Visitation Center and take steps to end child abuse.  Jack and Duncan were receiving services at the Family Visitation Center until there was a loss of funding.  The Judge then granted Jack and Duncan’s father unsupervised visits.  Jack and Duncan’s father took Jack and Duncan’s lives and then his own life during an unsupervised visit.  Amy Leichtenberg, Jack and Duncan’s mother, is involved in the planning of this event every year in memory of her sons.

All funds from the event go to the Family Visitation Center to help with operating costs and providing supervised visits and exchanges to families, who have an Order of Protection.
