There were thousands of pinwheels planted on the front lawn of North Florida Regional Medical Center early Saturday.
UF"s Family Law Society and the Alachua County Child Abuse Prevention Task Force hosted "winds of change" in recognition of abused and neglected children.
Cynthia Winter was planting hundreds of pinwheels. Each one represents a child who has been abused. She hopes that this will create some change in the community.
Last year alone, Alachua County had over 1,900 reported cases. Volunteers like Cynthia Winter say the numbers would be higher if more people reported these cases.
