Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped on June 5, 2002 and reunited with her family on March 12, 2003. In more than 75% of all abductions, children are killed within three hours.
Elizabeth survived 6,720 hours.
What makes her story so compelling is not that she survived against all odds, but what she’s done since hour 6,721. She is working to make our communities safer for children. Through the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, she strives to empower children, parents, and educators to protect children and stand up to abusers.
The Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council, a consortium of 43 communities, is one of only 19 certified Child Abduction Response Teams in the United States. The Hockomock Area YMCA is pleased that the Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council has chosen to support this event.
Strengthening families and preventing child abuse requires a shared commitment of individuals and organizations in every community. In response, the Hockomock Area YMCA developed a community-wide child abuse protection initiative in 2011.
Tickets for this event are for sale at the Hockomock Area YMCA’s branches in Foxboro, Franklin, and North Attleboro for $20 each. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Marge Kraskouskas at 508-643-5239 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
