In honor of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Richstone is hosting our first ever Marathon Month virtual fun run/walk this fall. We are challenging our community to join us in running or walking a total of 26.2 miles during the month of October to raise awareness of domestic violence and raise funds needed to support Richstone’s therapy programs that offer support for abuse survivors.
While we cannot physically gather together, we invite friends near and far to lace up their shoes and join our online community to log miles and #RunforRichstone. During the pandemic, we have seen an increase in demand for our trauma-based support services related to domestic violence and child abuse. Our offices remain physically closed but our therapists continue to provide therapy, classes, and support groups via telehealth.
