MADISON (WKOW) -- An organization committed to ending child abuse is asking the community to do something simple to help-- walk a mile.
The Rainbird Foundation hosted their "1,000 Mile Journey" on Sunday on Capitol Square. The goal is to have 1,000 people or more participate in the mile-long walk.
The non-profit strives to build a movement of people coming together to fight child abuse.
"We need to take a stand for the end of it because the numbers are doubling and it's only going to get more out of control, and we need to take a strong stand and make a clear line in the sand and commit to the end," says Hanna Roth, founder of Rainbird.
The event was also a fundraiser for the foundation. Donations go towards programs like Big Brothers Big Sisters and Rainbird's outreach programs.
