I have been participating in the CRY Walk since 2005. I continue to participate in the walks, because I believe that CRY is doing a commendable job upholding children’s rights. This year, I hope to not only participate in CRY Walk 2009, but with your support- raise money for the CRY cause. CRY has a long way to go to ensure that every child is guaranteed his/ her rights. The money generated by the walk, accounts for a substantial portion of CRY’s overall funds.
