THE STORY:

 

Please help me by donating to this charity and raise awareness in our communities about domestic violence. This is my first marathon and I am excited to be a part of a great charity team. I am an employee at Metropolitan Family Services and I  have seen the great work the Social workers do to help the families that are going through domestic violence. Please help me raise funds for a great cause.

 

CHICAGO METROPOLITAN BATTERED WOMENS NETWORK wrote -

Eleven very different domestic violence service providers from across the city have come together to advance their cause via the October 2015 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. All revenue generated by the Run DV Out of Town team, will be used by its member agencies for domestic violence prevention and supportive services for its survivors.

The Coalition is an unprecedented collaboration representing diverse populations across Chicago. Its member agencies are located in neighborhoods throughout the city and suburbs and serve communities representing all races, ethnicities, and religions. As Coalition member Ava Newbart, Director of Development at Shalva, states, “domestic violence doesn’t discriminate: it’s an equal-opportunity destroyer of families throughout Chicago. It doesn’t matter if you’re Hispanic, Asian, Jewish, or Arabic, or whether you are rich or poor. We embrace our diversity and stand together because nobody should be afraid in their own home. Domestic violence is NOT OK.”
