THE STORY:

This will be my third marathon and my second as a member of the Run DV Out of Town team.  As a physician specializing in women's health and as a board member for CAWC (Connections for Abused Women and their Children), domestic violence is an issue with which I am confronted much too often.  At CAWC, like many of the sister organizations within the Battered Women's Network, we work not only to shelter vulnerable women and their children but also to prevent domestic violence through education outreach to men and boys.  Please know that the money you donate to this fundraiser will go directly to help women and children in need.  See below for more information about the network you will be supporting:

CHICAGO METROPOLITAN BATTERED WOMENS NETWORK

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.”
