Event Description

10th Annual Walk to END ALL FORMS OF ABUSE

October 1, 2017 on the Brimfield Common there will be FREE Food, Entertainment, Kids Games and Crafts and more to help raise money to end all forms of abuse.

For the 10th year, STOP ABUSE TODAY, a division of the Tri-Town Domestic Violence Task Force will hold its 1.6 mile walk from the Brimfield Common @ 1PM rain or shine. Local and state politicians will be there to show their support as well as churches from the area.

When the walkers return to the common they will be able to visit area agencies booths, listen to music for all generations, kids can play games, make crafts, face paint, etc.

Why do we walk? Because 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men are victims of some sort of violence in their lifetime. 1 in 5 teen girls have reported being physically and/or sexually abused by a dating partner. 1 in 3 students report being bullied during the school year. 1in 10 elders are being abused.

These are startling statistics. Let’s show our community that we stand together against all kinds of abuse. Show up and walk to show your support to our mission to stop all forms of abuse.

For more information call Margo at 413-668-6965.
