14th Annual SafeWalk to be virtual October 2nd- October 4th
The Women’s Center will hold its annual SafeWalk virtually as an extended event the weekend of October 2nd - October 4th, 2020. SafeWalk is the Women’s Center’s premier event to unite the community in our vision to end domestic violence and raise essential funds to support our free programs and services.
Instead of walking inside Danbury Fair mall as we have in years past, individuals and teams are encouraged to walk, run and fundraise from the comfort of their own homes/communities. Choose a time that works with your schedule, hop on a treadmill, walk around your neighborhood or meet up with a group of friends at a large public space, don your facemask and hashtag your photos. People of all ages are encouraged to participate and create their own personal peer-to-peer fundraising page to encourage family and friends to sponsor them with a donation.
There will be a virtual party beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 4th with the release of a SafeWalk 2020 video featuring Pat Zachman, Women’s Center President & CEO, SafeWalk Co-Chairs Kathy Graham of Ridgefield and Vicki Taylor-Bloch of New Fairfield, local officials, members of the Women’s Center education team, and agency supporters.
The Women’s Center provides free and confidential services to prevent or lessen the trauma associated with domestic violence, sexual assault and other major life transitions to thousands of women, children and men annually. The programs of the Women’s Center are supported by state and local government, area United Way agencies and the people and businesses in the communities we serve, including Bethel, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Danbury, Kent, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, Redding, Ridgefield, Roxbury, Sherman, and Washington, CT.
