We are 10 very different domestic violence service providers from across the city of Chicago, who have come together to advance our cause in ending domestic violence. We recruit a team of dedicated runners to help us raise both money & awareness. All revenue generated by the Run DV Team is used by our member agencies for domestic violence prevention and supportive services for its survivors and their families.
The Run DV Coalition is an unprecedented collaboration representing diverse populations across Chicago. Our domestic violence agencies are located in neighborhoods throughout the city and suburbs, and serve communities representing all races, ethnicities, and religions.
