VISALIA – Tulare County District Attorney Phil Cline will host the 2nd
Annual Justice Run: 5k race/1 mile walk at Mooney Grove Park on
Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012 as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Family Services of Tulare County
and the Central California Family Crisis Center, the two primary
organizations that provide shelter and other services to victims of
domestic violence and their children. The 2011 Justice Run welcomed over
350 participants and earned proceeds in excess of $8,000. This year even
greater success is anticipated. Proceeds fund housing and supportive
services for victims and their families. These services include
emergency assistance (transportation, food, etc.) case management,
counseling and long-term housing support. There will be donation bins at
the Justice Run for collection of unopened toiletry items (hotel-sized
shampoo, lotion and soap) which are frequently needed as they are
provided to those seeking shelter.
“Domestic violence shatters lives and is more prevalent than most people
realize,” Cline noted. “Batterers come from all walks of life and the
violence hurts everyone in the family. We all need to be informed and
diligent if we are going to make a difference, and that is what this
event is about.”
If you work for a Tulare County Law Enforcement Agency or Fire
Department you are invited to participate in the Justice Run as a
competition between agencies. The first team member who crosses the
finish line will receive a plaque for their agency to commemorate the
Partner agencies will have informational booth displays at the park and
the District Attorney’s Office will provide information on their
Victim/Witness Assistance Program.
Participants can register now through race day. Registration costs $25
per person for those who register before October 15th, and includes an
event shirt and goodie bag. Registration is $30 after October
