A little rain on the streets didn’t stop hundreds for turning out on Saturday for the 13th annual Race Away from Domestic Violence. As runners, walkers and wheelchair rollers lined up for the start of the race, the rain stopped, the sky cleared and everyone had a great time. ICADV is grateful for everyone who participated and together raised more than $30,000 for programs and services for survivors of domestic violence.
