Step-up for Kids run helping to fight abuse


“I was a victim of child abuse. The intake in 1983 was worse than the abuse,” Mitchell said. 

“When I heard about how much the process has changed, I wanted to get involved in this run,” she continued.

Many of the participants at the run/walk wore Body by Stacy shirts, as she encouraged everyone in her gym to get involved

. “We raised over 1000 dollars,” she said.

One of the walkers, Linda Lionetti, said she participated because, “It’s so sad what some of the children have to deal with. So any way that we can support them we do.”

Lionetti is a teacher at the elementary school in Cooperstown. She and her three daughters ages 12, 13 and 15 participated in the walk.

Jeff Moore of Oneonta came in first place overall. Brian Guzy of Cooperstown finished second. 

Shannon Mott of Westford finished second among the women.

There were several vendors at the event including Home Depot in support of their Kids Workshops where kids learn to build; Building Healthy Families, a home visiting service for new and expecting parents; Northeast Parent and Child Society, a therapeutic foster care program; Thirty-One Gifts, and Madison Handbags. New York Bounce House also had 3 different bounce houses set up for the children to play on.
