Six Feet Walk
(May 29-31, 2020)
We are excited to announce that our First Annual MAKE A DIF-FUR-ENCE Six Feet Walk was a HUGE success--The Six Feet Walk is a Virtual community event where you can show your support of victims of domestic violence. We are borrowing this creative fundraising idea from our sister DV center, Harbor House in Orlando who turned their PAWS for PEACE walk into a succesful social distancing event last month.
Peaceful Paths is among the few Florida Domestic Violence agencies that allow vitcims to bring their pets with them to shelter. Research has shown that many victims find it difficult to leave their abusers when they have to abandon a beloved pet. Often times, these pets are also victims of the abusive relationship. We feel fortunate to be able to offer a service that ultimately will save more lives, the core of our mission.
The Make a DIF-FUR-ENCE SIX FEET WALK (4 PAWS +2 FEET=SIX FEET) is an opportunity to support survivors. It's easy. It's fun. It's flexible. It's COVID-19 concious.
What is the Six Feet Walk?
A virtual fundraiser where you and your furry friend take a walk in support of Peaceful Paths and show your stance against intimate partner violence.
Where will the walk be held?
You pick the location! You can walk in your neighborhood, around a park, on a trail, on the beach (if yours is open), on a track---get creative just remember the six-foot rule!
When is the Walk?
May 29-31-One of the benefits of virtual is flexibility! You get to pick the time over the weekend that works with your schedule. Hopefully, by that time, some of you will be particpating from your favorite beach!
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
Our goal is to raise $8,000 between the T-shirt sales, donations, and individual FB fundraisers. We exceeded that goal by raising over $9,000! AWESOME!
