Welcome to My Personal Page
As you know I do not normally like to reach out and ask for support. However, I am pleased to be a participant in an amazing ride (or walk) and hope you may be able to help support my efforts.
I am registered for the 10th Anniversary of Cycle & Walk the WAVE on Sunday, September 17 (yes, I am a little late getting this out). I'm excited to be participating in this all-women cycling and walk event, and to help Raise Awareness about the problems of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Did you know. . .
- 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.
- On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. This equates to more than 10 Million people per year.
- 3.3 million children experience domestic violence in the United States each year.
- 1 in 3 young people will experience teen dating violence.
The WAVE Foundation raises awareness about the societal impact of sexual assault and domestic violence. The WAVE Foundation builds community and fundraises to address the issue. They are empowering everyone, particularlyyouth and young adults, to recognize the warning signs of violence and to prevent its occurrence.
Funds I raise will support Discover Your Power, The WAVE Foundation's direct school-based educational program that teaches youth empowerment and confidence with regard to healthy relationships, and to other domestic violence agencies in Washington State.
It's easy. You can make a donation here using your credit card, or send a check payable to The WAVE Foundation to 1420 NW Gilman Blvd., Suite 2314, Issaquah, WA 98027. Please include my name on your check.
If you'd like to participate in the event, you can register at cyclethewave.org. Please let me know if you want to register. I am part of a team Issquah Fitness and we would love to have you join us.
Thank you for your help. You are playing an important role in ending domestic violence.
