THE STORY:

It is such an honor to use my very first marathon to support my domestic violence community!  As the Executive Director of The Safe Haven Network, I firmly believe that domestic violence is a community problem that only the community as a whole can solve.  I chose to run my first ever marathon for Team Run DV Out of Town because this way I can support not one, but TEN local domestic violence agencies making a difference in MY community.

The Safe Haven Network recognizes the important bond between people and their pets, and the role that bond can play in the struggles of a domestic violence victim.  With that in mind, I have pet-related rewards for those generous supporters who donate to my run:

$25 - A personalized thank you card, "signed" by my mascots, Lazarus and McLovin (make sure I have your address!)

$50 - The name of your pet (or anyone you'd like to honor) written on my race shirt (or shorts or shoes or legs, if I run out of space!)

$100 - A personalized thank you VIDEO from me and the mascots

$200 - All of the above, PLUS an exclusive Run DV t-shirt, designed by yours truly! (see here: https://teespring.com/stores/jessk-rundv-fundraiser)

ALL donors will be thanked publicly on my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - unless you request to donate anonymously.

If you have a story of domestic violence you want to share (either your own or to honor a friend or family member), I will gladly share those for free. :)

Thank you so much for supporting me and my community!!  For more information about the Run DV Coalition, read below...
