October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and WOW Run 2015 will donate a portion of its proceeds to The Baitul Salaam Network, Inc., an 18 year old non-profit domestic violence awareness organization founded in 1997 by four Muslim women here in metro Atlanta. Baitul Salaam have been assisting others with food, clothing, temporary shelter, money for utility bills/rent from their outreach office in Decatur, GA. The mission of the group has always been to share valuable information with the community so each person can chart their own path to safety, wellness and success.
WHY IT MATTERS
Fitting fitness into the life of a woman amongst her many roles can be quite a challenge. Starting is often the hardest step, but it is a very important one. Top issues that affect women health are heart disease, obesity, mental health, and violence against women. Today, one in three women under 50 has experienced physical and/or sexual violence. One third of all adults are obese, and 29% of all women death are related to heart disease. We want and need these statistics to change. Be WOW with us!
Start with WOW Run this October.
