HOUSTON: CRY, Child Rights and You America Inc (CRY America), a 501c3 non-profit organization announces its 10th Walk for Child Rights, which is being organized across 15 cities in the USA. The CRY Walk is an opportunity for people to show their support for the cause of Indian children, who are denied their basic rights to live, learn, grow and play.

CRY Walk 2013 is being held in New York, New Jersey, Houston, Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Seattle, Boston and several other cities till mid-November this year. The Houston event is happening on 20 October. The event comprises of 5k walk/run, fun activities (Crafts, sketching, painting etc.) for children, a cricket competition for Adults, a picnic for families and snacks for everyone!

Speaking about the event, Shefali Sunderlal, President, CRY America said, “We invite everyone (children, parents and grandparents) to join our local city walks to ensure that underprivileged children realize their potential and their dreams”.

CRY America, over the past 10 years, has ensured lasting change in the lives 422,878 children living across 2,395 villages and slums through support to 64 projects in India and the USA. This was done by working with community groups to ensure that children went to school and not to work, that they received quality health care and issues of child marriage and girl child discrimination were addressed.

“This impact has been possible only because of the support received from 19,000 donors and 2000 volunteers. If we all come together and address children’s issues with a sense of urgency, then no child will remain illiterate, malnourished or exploited”, Sunderlal concluded.

CRY Walk 2013 is presented by Star TV and sponsored by Air India, TV Asia, Inome, Mera Sangeet and Vantive Inc. We thank all our sponsors for their generous support.

“Our participation in the CRY Walk this year is a reiteration of our social commitment to support a charity every year. Through its outstanding work in the US, CRY America makes a tremendous difference in the lives of deserving children; it is our privilege to be a part of this initiative,” said Rajan Singh, EVP of International Business for Star Network.
