CRY Walk for Child Rights is an initiative organized annually by the 501c3 non-profit Child Rights and You America Inc. (CRY America) as a means to raise awareness and funds in support of underprivileged children, especially in India. CRY America is driven by its vision of a just world in all children develop to their full potential and realize their dreams. CRY Walk for Child Rights, in its seventh year is being organized by 20 Volunteer Chapters of CRY America.

Shefali Sunderlal, President, CRY America, emphasized the need for people to come together through such events to change the situation of underprivileged children. She said, "Illiteracy, child labor, malnutrition, and preventable diseases are injustices faced by millions of children on a daily basis. But not for long we hope. Because no matter how long or difficult the journey - if each one of us believes in doing what's right, then all children will have their right to live, learn, grow and play!"
