Cross Country Marathon Drive Against Domestic Violence to raise awareness across the USA


name dollars donors

During October--domestic violence awareness month--Ben Talei, M.D. and Nathan Talei, Esq. are going from NYC > MIA > LA on a Drive Against Domestic Violence! The proceeds are going entirely to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence ( which is an amazing foundation that has helped innumerable victims of abuse deal with this alarmingly common problem.

The goal is not only to raise money for the foundation, but to gain support for its initiatives, and for all those who need our help. We need everybody to spread the word, and unite under the common message that domestic abuse is unacceptable. We are all affected by the consequences of domestic violence, and as a unit, we need to Take a Stand.

Dare to Stand Against Domestic Violence. Throughout the drive, the guys will allow you, their loyal followers and champions against abuse, to offer ideas and suggestions for "dares" to be performed in select cities. The most interesting "dares" for each city will be posted for you to choose from. To do so, you will have the opportunity to donate money (however big or small) towards the "dare" which you find the funniest, coolest, or down-right most embarassing. Upon arriving in a given city, Ben and/or Nate will perform the "dare" that raised the most money in that city. The resulting photos and videos will be posted for your viewing pleasure.

When suggesting "dares," be mindful that we are representing the NCADV--and, please do not offer anything that will cause us to lose a limb or license! (Minor scuffs okay.)

Please "LIKE" this page on all of your social media with the links located on the page.

Please donate whatever you can, and pass the word along to everyone you know. You would be surprised to find out how many of your friends have had to deal with this problem, and how many have had to deal with it alone.

All are invited to join us on the drive!
