Description

Charleston's 3rd “Hope Walk 2018 Annual Walk/Run against Domestic Violence" . The 2018 Hope Walk /Run against Domestic Violence will be held on Saturday, September 15 from 8:00am-11:00am beginning on the Charleston side of the Ravenel Bridge and ending on the Mt. Pleasant side of the bridge.

By committing to Walk or Run with us, or even if you prefer to support from home , you are directly helping to support vital advocacy services to those affected by domestic violence. With facts and statistics such as South Carolina ranks #5 on the list of states with highest domestic violence reports, it is vital that we stand up and do something. In fact, The Violence Policy Center says about two women are killed for every 100 thousand people, making our state’s death rate more than twice the national average full.

Your participation in this event will aid Project Unity in being able to provide the necessary services to victims displaced by Domestic Violence through crisis intervention, emergency motel placement and food, safety planning and a wide range of other critically important supports to keep them safe and moving forward. Currently, for every five calls we may get in a weekend, we are only able to house one victim on our current budget. It has been recognized that the most dangerous time for a victim is when they leave the relationship. 50% of injuries and 75% of domestic homicides occur after the relationship ends. It is very heartbreaking to turn away a victim that could not find shelter or another safe place to go. This walk is for the many who can’t find help.

Will you help us help them?

This event includes speech’s by special guests TBA

Your sponsorship’s monetary donation guarantees that victims in our community continue to have access to free and confidential services 24 hours a day. It is your voice stating loud and clear that you "STAND WITH US AND AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE"! Take advantage of our early bird registration of $25 ending September 7, 2018. At the gate price will be $30 for late registrations. Hope to see you there!
