SHOALS, Ala. (WAFF) - A walk-a-thon will be held this Saturday in Sheffield to raise awareness for child abuse following the death of a 3-year-old boy who was killed in August 2020.

“3 million child abuse cases are reported each year, if we could help save the life of just one child, we’ve accomplished our goal"
