LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Kosair Charities began its annual campaign to end child abuse with a kick-off held at Slugger Field Monday.

The goal for the campaign is to educate adults and children through a ten-year prevention plan to stop abuse throughout the Commonwealth.

More than 18,000 Kentucky children were victims of abuse or neglect in 2010 and in 2011, 18 children died as a result.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and throughout the duration of the program, a new initiative will be introduced every year with more than 15 Kosair non-profit affiliates taking part.
