THE STORY:

Hi everyone,

As you know I love running (well except sometimes when I'm running lol), and this year I am running the marathon for the 2nd time. In addition to running, I am also very passionate about working towards ending violence against women. So, this year I am running for the charity Run DV Out of Town. It's a coalition of agencies that work with women and families that have been affected by domestic violence. Having worked for an organization who serves families who have experienced DV first hand, I know the importance of this work. Working primarily with women, I have seen them walking into the program/shelter with their self esteem and hopes stomped on, but I also have experienced the joy in seeing strong empowered women walk out. Although they may feel broken at first, they are not, because taking that first step of leaving a DV situation shows the bravery in their being. 

With that, I'd like to say it takes a lot of really awesome people and organizations to work in DV healing and prevention. So I ask that you help me support this very important cause. Please donate to my page for Run DV Out of Town and help these organizations continue helping families and doing this very necessary work.

Also, you can make a huge impact by encouraging confidence, positive self-esteem and self-worth in women and young girls and by promoting respect for women in all ways with men and boys.

Thanks!

Deya <3

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.”
