THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

On November 6, 2011 I will take on the biggest challenge of my life by running 26.2 miles and fundraising $2,500 for NYAWC. I've never ran a full marathon; Only ever finished a half marathon and by the picture attached I wasn't very happy about it. So I decided to turn that frown upside down and run a full Marathon for charity.

From an early age we volunteered at shelters, made pack lunches to feed the homeless in our city parks and helped fundraise money for our church. Our home was never short of women and children seeking support. Even now my mother runs a daycare aimed at helping disadvantaged children or foster children who suffer from domestic abuse.When my friend Donna suggested I run for NYAWC, I jumped at the chance to support their mission.

 

OUR SERVICES:

NYAWC helps women (and their children) recover from domestic violence and human trafficking. Our services are tailored to Asian women's cultural, social, economic, and legal circumstances. We offer shelter, counseling, legal assistance, children and teenage programs, assistance with obtaining education, housing, and work. Ultimately, NYAWC shelters women from harm, teaches practical skills and gives back their self-respect and hope for the future.

Our multilingual hotline provides assistance in more than 12 languages. As the largest Pan-Asian domestic violence and human trafficking agency in the country, NYAWC helps over 600 women and children a year.

NYAWC programs and services are cutting edge. We work with a local healthcare provider to better identify and serve Asian domestic violence survivors. We are the only organization that received funding from the Mayor’s Office to serve human trafficking survivors. Our digital art therapy program uses modern technology to engage and assist teens. Our grassroots community education and domestic violence prevention campaign works to foster attitudinal change about domestic violence and engage in a community-wide movement to stop abusive behavior.
