Shine the Light On CDV in Atlanta 1st Regional 5K
Hosted by our Georgia Chapter
Come out for a good cause on November 11th and make your mark in the quest to build awareness to what UNICEF calls “one of the most pervasive human rights challenges of our time” – Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV). CHILDHOOD DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (CDV) is when you grow up living in a home with violence between your parents or violence towards a parent, from a stepparent or significant other. CDV impacts 1 in 7 people in our community (278,702 children in the Atlanta Metro) right now! 55 million Americans are impacted (children and adults who were these children) in our nation. It has a “profound and lasting impact on a life.” Most end up struggling in some or all key areas of their life, and it significantly increases their likelihood of suicide, addiction, and violence, which often gets passed onto the next generation. BUT…no one knows about it! Because CDV has <15% public awareness…and no widely practiced solutions to curb it. YOU CAN HELP CHANGE THAT!
On November 11th, we will host our first ever regional CDV awareness 5K in Roswell, GA. Join hundreds locally in raising awareness and money to make a difference for the estimated children impacted by CDV in Metro Atlanta and the adults they will become, while enjoying a vigorous run/walk amidst the scenic Riverside Park in Roswell. We hope to see you there!
