I WILL BE RUNNING MY 4TH CHICAGO MARATHON THIS YEAR WITH RUN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OUT OF TOWN 2015 CHARITY GROUP. FURTHERMORE, BEING A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SURVIVOR AND ADVOCATE MYSELF, IT'S MY TURN TO PAY IT FORWARD & HELP OTHER'S THAT HAVE NO VOICE! SAY NO MORE!!! HELP PUT AN END TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE. GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP, GOD BLESS.
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.”
