World Elder Abuse Walk
June 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is June 15th. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was launched on June 15, 2006, by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations.
Buncombe County Health and Human Services, along with several partnering agencies are planning the 2023 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Walk on Thursday, June 15, from 5 pm to 7 pm at Carrier Park. This multi-generational event is free to all and will include information about elder abuse, its impacts on our community, and information from local agencies that offer actions and supports to combat elder abuse.
The event will feature live music from the Knotty G’s, as well as food and desserts from Doc Brown’s BBQ, Howdy Homemade Ice Cream and Small Cakes, and face painting for the kids and young at heart.
