Laura's March: a 5K Walk/Run to End Sexual Violence
The 8th annual Laura's March 2014 will be held September 13, 2014 at Oakledge Park in Burlington, VT. Register and start fundraising here!
Walker, runners, cyclists and four-legged marchers are all welcome!
We have selected three primary beneficiaries for Laura’s March 2014:
• H.O.P.E. Works will develop, expand, and enhance victim advocacy services for children and youth with an in-house mental health counselor.
• Pride Center of Vermont (formerly RU12? Community Center) will expand its outreach and education efforts to ensure safety and prevent sexual violence and will collaborate with the Threshold Collective, which uses storytelling, photography, and video to effect change, create leadership, and promote healthier communities.
• The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program (SANE) at Fletcher Allen Health Care will send at least 2 nurses to the annual Scientific Assembly to connect with peers and professionals to discuss new research and share information to improve care to patients.
The LKW Fund will also use funds raised at Laura’s March to increase its present and future capacity to fund programs which support our mission.
