Run to defeat Child Abuse
About the Dolphin House’s Virtual 5k
As you may imagine, with the challenges being experienced by our communities in the wake of the Covid 19 Pandemic, incidents of child abuse are on the rise. Since 2020, The Dolphin House has seen over a 23% increase in the number of victims served, unfortunately that trend means the services we provide are even more vital to the communites we serve. We have seen a increase in internet crimes against children, children witnessing severe violence in their homes and the severity of sexual abuse and physical abuse has also intensified. Help us this Child Abuse Prevention Month raise awareness and spread the message of Defeating Child Abuse!
The more you know…
The Covid 19 Pandemic challenged our creative ability to create a fundraising event that would adhere to state and local restrictions, as in person events were not possible. To meet that challenge, we created an event that was not only successful as a fundraiser, but also spread the message of defeating child abuse far and wide; runners of the 1st Annual Run to Defeat Child Abuse Virtual 5K registered from as far away as Hawaii and Maryland!
With your support, we will continue to spread the message of preventing and defeating child abuse. Planning for the 3rd Annual Dolphin House Run to Defeat Child Abuse Virtual 5k is underway and we welcome your sponsorship. The deadline for sponsorship is March 1st, 2023, race registration will begin in March and the race will commence on April 1st to kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month!
