September 25, 2015 – Westbury, NY – Domestic Harmony Foundation (DHF) is a community based not-for-profit organization in Long Island, working to empower victims of domestic violence through support services such as advocacy, counseling, legal consultations, support groups, crisis intervention, financial assistance, and leadership development initiatives.
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Beginning in 2012, DHF as part of our education and outreach initiatives has initiated and hosted a Walkathon reaching out to a diverse array of people of all age groups to educate and spread awareness about violation of basic human rights. Domestic Violence is hurting not only the victims, but also their children and families.
This year, DHF has added a 5K Run alongside the 2.5K walk. The event ‘Run/Walk to End Domestic Violence’ will be held on October 11, 2015 from 9:30 AM-1:00 PM at Eisenhower Park, Uniondale, Long Island. A participation of 300 – 500 people will make the event a huge success. Prizes were donated by DHF supporters for Men’s First Place 5K Finish – 2 TICKETS for GAME 3 of METS PLAYOFF SERIES and Women’s First Place 5K Finish – GIFT CERTIFICATE for SHOPPING.
DHF is requesting all Long Islanders to register as well as encourage family members, friends and colleagues to participate in the Walk/ Run to send a powerful message of NO to VIOLENCE and help us raise much needed funds.
