They said this coming month is about reminding people that the sad reality of child abuse is preventable.

Burke County child abuse prevention advocates are presenting a community challenge this April for businesses and community members to add pinwheels and pinwheel gardens to our community throughout the month of April.

According to Nancy Willis, executive director of the 15 Judicial District Child Advocacy Center, each pinwheel represents a child who was severely physically or sexually abused and helped by the Child Advocacy Center.

"If we all work together in Montgomery County we can achieve our vision of having a community that strives to make sure all children and youth are respected, nurtured and protected", MCYSB Director Karen Branch said. Circuit Court Judge Thomas Hakes spoke about how to prevent child abuse and neglect.

"Today's children are our future leaders, parents, and workers", said Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight in a letter to local business owners. This year the goal is to have more than 75,000 participants.

A year ago in IL, 110,098 cases of child abuse were reported.

"I want them to understand how important what we do is", Clark explained.
