Saturday, June 6 was the perfect day for a walk, run and wheelchair roll from Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis. Nearly 600 of you turned out to join your friends and family, offering support to survivors and victims of domestic violence. We are so proud of everyone who was there with us. When all the reports are in, we expect that registration fees and FirstGiving fundraising pages, plus sponsorships, raised about $63,000 for programs and services that support survivors of domestic violence around the state.
