Benefit walk/run helps Domestic Violence Services

<p>More than two dozen participants helped raise $1,180 for Domestic Violence Services during a fundraising walk/run Oct. 12 at Boardman Marina Park.</p>

Rain and cold weather didn’t deter more than two dozen runners and walkers who raised money for Domestic Violence Services.

The Domestic Violence Awareness 5K walk/run held Oct. 12 at Boardman Marina Park raised $1,180.

The nonprofit organization provides 24-hour crisis assessment, emergency shelter, peer support, support groups, referrals, advocacy and community education in Umatilla and Morrow counties.  

Deona Siex, the Morrow County victims assistant director, thanks all the participants and volunteers that helped make the event a success.
