EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
Running a Marathon is a challenge, but not nearly as challenging as living in fear... Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the U.S., and 60% of sexual assaults are never reported to the police. 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim.
CATS (Center for Assault Treatment Services at Northridge Hospital) is dedicated to helping victims of sexual assault find their voice by providing 24/7 services to victims of sexual assault and abuse of all ages in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. Each year they serve 1,000 victims, 1/4 of them are children age 6 or younger. At CATS, victims are cared for in a nurturing environment with their safety and well being a primary concern.
Please help me raise at least $500.00 for Team CATS as I work to train for the Los Angeles Marathon. Your donations will go towards treating victims of sexual assault, aid in the collection of evidence to help police, and educate and provide outreach to our neighborhoods.
Break the Silence. Stop the Abuse.
