Half Marathon Run for Life Span
“At least 16 people were killed last year in domestic-related incidents in Chicago, according to police statistics through late December. In recent years, 2007 had the most domestic violence homicides, with 44.” – Chicago Tribune, 1/24/12
Life Span was founded in 1978 to address the crucial need for services for women abused by spouses or intimate partners and has been at the forefront of the domestic violence movement by combining legal and counseling assistance to clients.
For the past 34 years they have continually increased their programming, staff, and the services provided to thousands of women and children each year.
We will be running in the Spring Half Marathon on May 20, 2012 in Schaumburg. All the money we raise will go toward helping Life Span continue to provide education, counseling and legal support that will change lives for the better.
