Lauren Book, founder of Lauren’s Kids, led the way of what looked like a sea of blue into Sun Life Stadium on Sunday as part her annual Walk in My Shoes event.
Starting in Key West and concluding in Tallahassee, the 1,500-mile statewide journey not only raises awareness for sexual abuse victims, but also provides Book a platform to work as an advocate for change in Florida law regarding those victims.
Not wasting any time, an assembly line formed and all participants began filling packages with items such as teddy bears and books provided by the Miami Dolphins Foundation. After the bags were filled, participants set off again on their journey to the state capitol.
