Editor’s note: The following is adapted from a press release from Middle Way House.
At 10 a.m. on April 24, Middle Way House will host its first virtual walk to raise money for sexual assault services provided by the Crisis Intervention Services Program and to show support to survivors of sexual violence.
Participants will walk one mile anywhere they want—together virtually at that time or own their own any other time during the month of April. Participants are encouraged to take a selfie on their walk and share it with the organization using the hashtag #oneistoomany and #SAAM2021.
Registered participants can participate in a virtual trivia event to be held at 4 p.m. on April 24. The $20 registration fee also includes a T-shirt designed especially for Sexual Assault Awareness Month by a community member. T-shirts are limited in quantity. Click here to register.
