BROCKTON--Family and Community Resources of Brockton hopes to raise awareness and money to meet the rising need of women and children suffering from domestic violence.
Family and Community Resources will host the "Hearts and Hands for Hope" 5K Run/Walk to End Domestic Violence, Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011 beginning with a 9 a.m. registration at Raymond Elementary School.
In recognition of October as domestic violence FCR, in a prepared statement, hopes to help those who seek services and counseling in order to escape the terror, physical abuse and potentially life-threatening harm they face each day from domestic violence.
Family and Community Resources has experienced a 20% increase in demand for their services over the last year, so fundraising dollars are needed more than ever. Support of this race will go a long way to help provide the necessary services to individuals and children effected in our local communities.
The start and finish line will be at the Raymond Elementary School, 125 Oak Street, Brockton.
Registration begins at 9 a.m.
