On Saturday, June 8, CT-ALIVE Board member, Jenny Ann ran in the 2nd Annual Race to End Domestic Violence in Newington, CT. She finished third in her age group and earned herself a GOLD MEDAL! Congratulations to our Running Thriver Jenny Ann.
Make a DONATION to CT-ALIVE to honor Jenny’s triumph!
Other CT-ALIVE Board members and volunteers, Christine, Joanna and Adrienne, provided information to race participants about CT-ALIVE programs for domestic violence victims helping them move from victim to survivor to “thriver!”
The Annual Race (5k Trail Run and a 5k Trail Walk) is in memory of Police Officers Peter Lavery and Ciara McDermott who were victims of domestic violence. The Annual Race’s goals are to raise awareness about domestic violence, provide support to victims and remember those affected by domestic violence.
Critical “Next-Step” for Moving On After Abuse
“Living well is the best revenge” is the theme of the My Avenging Angel Workshops™ being offered twice a year in Avon and Wethersfield, Connecticut by Susan M. Omilian of West Hartford — the workshop’s award-winning originator and facilitator.
Described by participants as “life-changing,” these workshops provide the critical “next step” for women to break permanently out of the cycle of violence and “thrive” after abuse.
Workshops are Free
Sponsored by the Hartford Hospital Domestic Violence Prevention Program, and supported by Connecticut Alliance for Victim of Violence and Their Families Inc. (CT-ALIVE), the workshops are free of charge. Dates of the upcoming Fall, 2013 workshops are posted on www.myavengingangel.com.Read More
