Domestic Violence Awareness Walk set for Saturday


October 2, 2019

District 4 Human Resources Development Council and the Hill County Health Department are partnering for the sixth annual domestic abuse awareness 5K run and walk Saturday, starting at the Western Drug parking lot at 123 Fifth Ave.

Sign up begins at 9:30 a.m. with the event start time at 10 a.m.

“It is just a way to raise awareness about the domestic abuse program we have here and the services we offer to domestic violence victims,” HRDC Domestic Abuse Program Shelter Manager Renae Miller said.

Miller added that the types of services the domestic abuse program offers are a shelter here in Havre, getting people into housing, and giving them the resources they need to get back on their feet. She said whether that means getting them groceries or just by being a support and help them get their independence back.

The event is free to the public, but people can purchase event T-shirts for $5 the whole week and the day of the event till they run out of T-shirts at HRDC.

Parker’s Barbecue Pit will sell food at the event and will donate 10 percent of its sales to the program.

People who have questions can contact the HRDC Domestic Abuse Program at 406-265-6743 ext. 1141.

“This is to show that people in the community care about this issue and that they have resources,” Miller said. “If they need somewhere to go they can come to our program and we will support them and have them come to a non-judging environment.”
