Matt and I share the philosophy that you should always look for opportunities to turn a negative into a positive. As co-survivors of childhood domestic violence, we are once again participating in the Refuse to Abuse 5K in order to raise awareness as well as funds for the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Refuse To Abuse® is a partnership between the Seattle Mariners and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) to promote healthy, respectful relationships. WSCADV is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charity. Every dollar raised directly supports their work to prevent domestic violence.
