ABOUT the RACE
The purpose of this race is to bring awareness to domestic violence and sexual assault, not just in our city and state, but in our country as well.
Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault affect us all are and can, either directly or indirectly. For every woman, man and child who has lost his or her lives and may be going through it as we speak, you are not alone in your struggle.
All of the donations and resources raised through this race/walk will go towards helping us raise awareness and to raise resources for our domestic violence safe house and permanent housing program. We would like to be able to offer opportunities and options for victims and their families. We believe through education, advocacy, and support that together as a community we can say to those that offend we are not going to allow violence to rip our community apart. As we go into October, which is national Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault awareness month, we would like for everyone to know that the awareness needs to be all year along, which is part of the reason we began our campaign in the early part of the year. So please join us on Sunday September 11, as we join together with everyone in our community as we use every style of shoe to “KICK DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OUT OF TOWN”!
We also like to take the opportunity while we are walking and running to honor those lives lost on September 11 and to our military personnel and their family members who protect our rights to be safe from violence in our communities.
