7th Annual Peace Walk - Cameron Community Ministries and Healthi Kids | Kids Out and About Rochester

7th Annual Peace Walk - Cameron Community Ministries and Healthi Kids

The children of Cameron Community Ministries’ After School Program will march on Thursday, May 30 at 4:30 p.m. for peace and their right to play in a safe neighborhood. During their 7th Annual Peace Walk in the Lyell/Otis Neighborhood, Cameron Community Ministries’ will also feature its new Teen Center that will play a key role in keeping teens in the neighborhood safe.

Partnering with the Healthi Kids Coalition, an initiative of Common Ground Health, and the Lyell/Otis Neighborhood Association, the kids are hosting the walk to call for a safer neighborhood. The children will lead their friends, community members and family in their daily route along Cameron St., Otis St., and Lyell Ave. Marchers will wear t-shirts with a famous Frederick Douglass quote that say, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Following the march, children ages 5-12 years old will share their thoughts on how violence in their neighborhoods has affected them and why it is important for them to take a stand for peace.

Join us and encourage others to walk with our kids because everyone deserves a safe place to play!

The kids will be selling T-shirt’s if you’d like to buy one of your own. $10 cash only and we need a size and name reservation ahead of time.
