Running To End Domestic Violence--Metro Detroit
A team for TURNING POINT INC
"Running To End Domestic Violence--Metro Detroit" a team to help victims of domestic violence become survivors.
Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior where one person exerts power or control over another through physical, psychological, emotional, verbal, sexual, and/or economic abuse. Domestic violence can happen to anyone.
My sister and I are trying to raise awareness and educate people about domestic violence. We are racing in several events in the months leading up to the Detroit Free Press Marathon on October 21st. We are also attending local festivals and fairs to bring attention to this issue and ask for donations. Most importantly, we hope to inspire victims to become survivors by pointing them towards the resource that are available to protect and support them.
Any money we raise through this website or by racing and going to community festivals this summers and fall will benefit Turning Point. Turning Point's mission is to provide programs and resources that enable victims/survivors of domestic and sexual violence to regain control of their lives. with the help of volunteers and donations from individuals and local businesses.
Help us Support, Encourage, Empower, the Scared, the Silent, the Abused.
