For every victim who is afraid, embrassed or feel no one will believe you... there is HELP out there... Let's BreaK the SilencE

via Crowdrise 3 years ago

THE STORY:

When my friends volunteered me to run a marathon and do it for a good cause, I figured this was the push I needed to cross a  marathon off  from my to due list.  I didn't realize that I was going to be part of something big. Training was painful and fundraising was tough!..March 20th came and it was the worse day to run a marathon. Running through the stormy weather, freezing, feeling helpless, tired and in pain, made me want to quit but I was running for something big. I was running for those who believe in me and C.A.T.S.  I ran  to bring awareness and to give a voice to those who are scared to speak out. I ran to Break the Silence for victims of sexual assault.

Even though the LA Marathon was painful, raising awareness to Break the Silence was worth it and that's why I have choosen to do it again!

Join me to Break the Silence for victims  of sexual assault by donating to this great cause. Leave the running to me!

 

NORTHRIDGE HOSPITAL FOUNDATION wrote -

Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the U.S. 60% of sexual assaults are never reported to the police. 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim.

CATS (Center for Assault Treatment Services at Northridge Hospital) provides 24/7 services to victims of sexual assault and abuse of all ages in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. Each year we serve 1,000 victims, 1/4 of them are children age 6 or younger. At CATS, victims are cared for in a nurturing environment with their safety and well being a primary concern.

CATS collects forensic evidence which helps law enforcement and the D.A.'s Office get the abusers off the street, and educates the community about the importance of child abuse reporting.
