Austin, TX, April 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Army of Angels, an international coalition of children's rights groups and organizations, is gearing up for its annual Kross Kountry 4 Kids ride with the help of home security providers Life Connect Advantage, Protect America, and the Alarm Alliance of Sacramento.
The event runs across the United States from Rancho Cordova, California to Washington D.C. and back. Organizers hope the ride will help raise awareness for missing, killed, or exploited children. Participants in the Kross Kountry 4 Kids ride will include Army of Angels supporters in addition to parents of lost or abused children. Financial support for the event is being offered by Life Connect Advantage and the Alarm Alliance of Sacramento. Protect America will be providing a GPS tracking unit for the lead chase car that will allow supporters to follow the ride's progress across country.
"Events like the Kross Kountry 4 Kids ride are incredibly important for raising awareness," said Kristen Hobaica, a spokeswoman for Protect America. "More than 2,300 children go missing every day but people need to realize we can actually do something to reduce this number. We just need more people to be more aware of the dangers facing our nation's kids."
The ride starts on March 30th to commemorate the start of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Army of Angels supporters will gather in Sacramento for an opening ceremony and dinner that will feature guest speakers, including Roger Chiang, a producer for America's Most Wanted. In addition to following the GPS tracker provided by Protect America, updates on the ride's progress will be available on the Army of Angels Facebook page.
