Advocate completes walk at state capitol

TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WFLX) - -

Sex abuse victim and child advocate Lauren Book finished her 15-hundred mile walk at the State capitol today. This is the third year she's walked the state.  Book walks to raise awareness for sexual abuse and to encourage young victims to report the crime.  Book helped create a program to teach Florida kindergarten children how to safely report their abusers.

 "95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable with education and awareness," Book said.  "This is how we do it.  It starts in kindergarten."

Lauren's walk began 39 days ago.  She's already preparing for next year.
