About This Activity

We want you to enjoy a walk or run around beautiful Audubon Park. Following we will conduct tours of the Audrey Hepburn Care Center as well as some entertainment, information, food, and fun for the kids.  

What You Can Expect On The Day Of The Walk:

  • When you first arrive at the walk site, you will need to go to the Check-In/Registration table and either check in (if you have already registered) or register (fill out a day of walk registration form).
  • After checking in, turn in any donations you have received for your participation for the walk, or any donations you’d like to make yourself.
  • An opening ceremony to celebrate your participation in the Root Out Child Abuse Walk.
  • Fun Activities! The Root Out Child Abuse Walk will have various activities to participate in the day of the walk: children’s area, entertainment, and guest speakers.
  • The walk itself! This will be very relaxed. Think of it as a stroll through the park (because that’s what it is)!
  • A closing ceremony to thank you for your support to the Louisiana Royal Hearts Foundation and your participation in the walk. So stay until the end and enjoy the closing Speaker, resource tents, and various prices and activities.   

Helpful Tips:

  • This isn’t a competition, so just enjoy the walk. It’s like a walk in the park…
  • Yet another reason to form a Walk Team – enjoy the company of your friends, loved ones, and everyone else who supports the mission of The Louisiana Royal Hearts Foundation.
  • Remember – you are the reason Louisiana Royal Hearts Foundation exists! Be proud you are bringing awareness to the millions of children affected by abuse and neglect.
  • Don’t forget to tie your shoes!

Hosted by

Louisiana Royal Hearts Foundation

The Louisiana Royal Hearts Foundation is hosting our very first Root Out Child Abuse Walk in Audubon Park on April 1, 2017. It would be an honor for you to join our efforts to bring awareness to the 681,000 children who are abused nationwide annually. In 2014, state agencies identified an estimated 1,580 children died as a result of abuse and neglect. That is an average of about 4 kids per day. This can be your daughter, son, niece or nephew! Everybody knows someone, who has been affected by physical, emotional, mental, and/or sexual abuse as a child. For some of us, it’s you, your mother, sister, brother, co-worker or friend. Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. It’s a widespread war against our children that we have the power to stop, and understanding the issue is the first step.
