5th Walk Against Domestic Violence


The planning for the 5th Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence is underway! We will be walking on August 20th at 9 am from the Maplewood Rose Garden Park area back to the park for a celebration. This walk has generated tremendous local media and community attention because the message is so critical – domestic violence brings utter devastation to families – especially, to the children who witness violence in their homes.

This walk is truly a grassroots effort and to make it possible for everyone to join, participation is free.  Last year, we had over 300 who registered and walked!  As an activist, I seek the support of the community to help bring awareness, information, and a light of hope at the end of the tunnel to suffering families.  I know firsthand that domestic violence is no joke, as I am a survivor of such harmful actions.  

I am writing today to ask for your participation and sponsorship.  We need help paying for T-shirts, promotional items, permits, food, water bottles, chair and tent rentals, door prizes, balloons and more. Because of your sponsorship, we will promote your business in our marketing efforts.  We’d also like to give tribute to sponsors by awarding diplomas and trophies.  These awards can be displayed at your business to show your support for victims, survivors and children impacted by domestic violence.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of sponsorship this year.  Please contact me before July 7th, 2016 -- no amount is too little and the sky is the limit!  If you have any questions, please contact me directly at 595.490.6294 or at lucymatos1@gmail.com

With gratitude,
