BENEFITING: Pittsburgh Action Against Rape aka PAAR
ORGANIZER: Pittsburgh Action Against Rape aka PAAR
EVENT: PAAR Rocks the Great Race!
Pittsburgh Action Against Rape (PAAR) is a profound organization that I have the privilege to work for. As a medical advocate, I respond to women, men, and children in hospitals who are victims of sexual assault throughout Allegheny County. Our mission is to "Respond, Educate, and Advocate to end sexual violence". We provide both legal and medical advocacy as well as on-site counseling services, hotline counseling, and educational outreach services to victims and the community as a whole. Our organization simply wouldn't exist if it weren't for our support of volunteers and donors. Unfortunately, an unbelievable amount of sexual assault cases go unreported each year, for those that are, we put forth 100% to attend to each individual and family and assist in any way possible. Please consider donating, in ANY amount however so small, to such a extraordinary cause I am able to be a part of and run for in the 37th Annual Great Race.
