On July 9th, 2007, Nicole, a 24-year old mother of two young boys, was shot to death by her husband who then took his own life. Nicole had a passion and love for life, with a contagious smile and a vibrant personality. She loved her sons more than anything, and taking them for walks along the beaches in Kennebunk was one of her favorite activities.
After seven years married to an abuser, Nicole found the strength and courage to leave and start a new life. She was attending college at YCCC and working towards her dream of becomming an RN. She was making friends and was truly happy. Lured by the promise of money for a new apartment, she returned to her old house where her husband took her life.
Nicole's Run was founded by Nicole's friends and family so that anyone experiencing domestic violence can access critical support and services to live safely free from abuse.
