I has been two long years since River City Domestic Violence Center got out on the bridge to "Walk a Mile in Their Shoes" and we were excited to get moving! This year marked our 14th year of hosting this march against violence and awareness event. Our goal has always been to show up and step out for survivors of violence, showing them that we are here to walk this journey with them.
We had 12 teams and 90 walkers this year! We are proud of the community for coming out despite the looming pandemic, heat, and storm rolling in. Our largest teams this year were the Yankton Fire Department (recieving the award with 12 walkers) and Horizon Health Care. Reverend Reck took home the certificate for largest individual fundraiser and First Dakota National Bank won it for the team category. Long time walker Dan Sanow won some cool gift cards for Most Spirited Walker and our Service Certificate went to Board Member Sheila Woodward.
We are so blessed to have you all walking beside survivors and our mission here at River City Domestic Violence Center. We could not accomplish our goals without the help from each and every one of you. Thank you!
