The Miles For Smiles Survivor’s walk is a 4 km walk for child abuse survivors. The walk represents life after abuse as we realize we are stronger together, we are never alone and we ARE survivors – in every sense of the word.
We invite survivors along with friends, parents, siblings, children, colleges or anyone that has been affected by child abuse to join us as we walk to show there is life after abuse.
Bev Moore Davis is a local child abuse prevention advocate and founder of the Miles For Smiles Foundation. The walk will take place in Georgetown and Marysvale – approximately 45 minutes west of St John’s – and will bring us back to the community where Bev ran away from home at 17 years of age.
