3rd Annual Walk of Hope

By: Nancy Castillo

Thursday, July 24, 2014

The Marion County Childrens Alliance Family Violence Prevention Workgroup in partnership with the College of Central Florida is hosting the 3rd Annual Walk of Hope: Honoring Victims and Survivors of Domestic Violence on Saturday, September 13, 2014. The 3.2 mile walk starts at the Ocala Police Department and proceeds for 3.2 miles along State Road 200 ending at the College of Central Florida. Last year, more than 500 people participated in the walk, which is designed to raise awareness and provide education about domestic violence in our community. We need your support. We are looking for overall sponsors to support the event (general sponsorship packet enclosed) but, if your business is located along the Walk of Hope route on State Road 200, below are other unique ways you can support the event:  1) If your company or business has a marquee, please consider putting the following message i.e Walk of Hope, Sept. 13 on the marquee outside or a message of your choice the week before or the day of the event.  2) Post a flyer(s) about the event on the doors or windows at your business and/or allow us to provide flyers to put on the counter for customers to take.  3) If you would like to offer specials or discounts to walkers who patronize your business the day of the event, please let us know and we will advertise and distribute the information to participants. All monetary donations will be used to support the event and provide resources and services to victims and survivors of domestic violence in our community. Thank you for any support you may be able to provide to help us make our community safer for women, children and men, who are also victims. No one should have to live in fear or be abused. For more information, go to or for questions, please call Diane at (352) 438-5990 or Monica at (352) 438-5993.
