For over 30 years, Heartly House has been helping Frederick County residents who have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. Their counseling services, 24-hour hotline, and legal assistance are just a few of the services that Heartly House provided me and other victims of domestic violence.
All revenues that are generated through this event will go directly to Heartly House. The objectives for the race are to raise awareness about domestic violence in the DC metro area, to help educate the community about domestic violence and ways to break the cycle, and to raise money for Heartly House so they can continue to help the community.
