Established in 1990, the Marion County Domestic Violence Council consists of community members and public agencies committed to ending domestic violence. Participating in the domestic violence walk/run event or becoming a walk/run sponsor will contribute to on-going awareness activities and will show your support for survivors in our community. Fifty-percent of the profits go to help survivors in our community through the Hope & Safety Center formerly Mid-Valley Women's Crisis Service. The other fifty percent help support future awareness events!
1 in 6 women will become a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime. Domestic violence is an escalating pattern of behavior in a relationship that is used to both create inequality and to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner or family member. It can happen to anyone regardless of age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender.
Fifty-percent of the proceeds go directly to The Center for Hope and Safety formerly the Mid-Valley Women's Crisis Service (MVWCS). The Center for Hope and Safety provides support and advocacy for victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault and human trafficking with a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, counseling, and community education and outreach. Becoming a sponsor or participating in this event will help to financially support this wonderful agency and survivors in our community!
