Take Steps Against Domestic Abuse In Middletown
If you think there's nothing you can do to help abused spouses and troubled teens, take a walk.
But take that walk Saturday, May 12 at Middletown High School North. Members of the Atlantic Highlands Leo Club have organized their first annual Hold On, Pain Ends (HOPE) Walk, with proceeds to benefit 180-Turning Lives Around.
The Monmouth County-based non-profit agency has continued its mission of ending domestic and sexual violence for 36 years. Organizers say that Monmouth is in its fourth year of ranking among the highest in New Jersey for domestic violence reports.
Walkers will cover two miles around the high school track. Entry fees stand at $20, and they're tax-deductible. Registration starts at 8 AM and the walkers step off an hour later. Find out more at http://www.180nj.org or visit the group's Facebook page.
