Triumph Crisis Recovery Center's Fundraiser:

TAKE A STEP END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

THE STORY:

My name is Frances Thomas and I am the founder of the Triumph Crisis Recovery Center. I’m also a survivor of domestic violence. I started Triumph to keep a promise to my children. As we worked our way back to normalcy, we vowed that one day we would help families like ours. Domestic violence is ugly and we turn our eyes from it because women choose their abusers. They choose to love them, marry them and, even after they realize that they are in a dangerous situation, they choose to stay. But their children don’t. The friends and families that love these women and their children don’t want a poor choice of a husband or partner to be fatal. I’m a survivor and I wish I could tell you that one day I had enough, that I had chosen the way out on my own. But, I didn’t. After years of violence, after many attempts on my life, my teenage daughter reached out for help and saved my life. Despite the broken bones, despite fearing for my life, I stayed. I stayed because: I wanted to keep my family together; I was afraid and ashamed; I had built a life that I wanted to protect and I didn’t know how to do that while getting help. At Triumph, we help victims make different choices by removing the reasons that keep them in dangerous relationships. Triumph provides emergency housing, counseling, training in boundary setting and economic empowerment, and legal services. I hope that you will choose to be a part of our work and support us in our 5th Annual Triumph Run/Walk. Your sponsorship helps defray the cost of organizing the event and to fund our work helping families struggling with domestic violence. This year, we want to raise $75,000 to fund community outreach, counseling, training, and legal services. The 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, June 24th at Vista View Park in Davie, Florida. On-site registration and exercise warm-up kicks off at 5:45 am and the certified 5K Run/Walk starts at 7:00 am. Please join us by running, walking, or just cheering us on! Awards will be given for top qualifiers of all age groups. The event will be managed by Split Second Timing. Thank you for your generosity and support. Attached you will find the sponsorship form with details about sponsorship benefits. Please call or email me to set up a sponsorship or if you have any questions. Sincerely, Frances Thomas Founder fthomas@tcrcenter.og 954-499-0909 954-680-2500 Ext. 41
