BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - A child sexual abuse survivor and child protection advocate is making her way through South Florida on her 1,500 mile walk to the Florida Capitol.

Lauren Book started Tuesday in Boca Raton and made her way through Boynton Beach to West Palm Beach for her 5th annual "Walk in My Shoes" walk.

The 42 day walk is in honor of the 42 million survivors of child sex abuse in the U.S. and serves to raise awareness about child sexual abuse prevention.
