Run/ Walk For Love Brings Important Awareness to Santa Barbara
Coming this November, Santa Barbara’s Run/Walk for Love will draw an array of passionate participants out for a 5K focused on raising awareness and money for the fight against domestic violence. The event will be hosted and run by Domestic Violence Solutions, which is Santa Barbara’s lone full-service domestic violence agency. The event is scheduled to take place on November, 1st and Hotel Milo is excited for such an eye opening social engagement to take place in Santa Barbara.
As this Southern California town’s rolling, oceanside hills and gorgeous weather will provide a scenic atmosphere for the run/ walk, they also coincide with the theme of the event. While domestic violence is a horrifying reality of life, the nature of this gathering is to promote positive behavior and replace hatred with the nominal trait— love.
Domestic Violence Solutions takes the preventive approach through various services and interventions aimed to re-examine the current response to domestic violence and social change. It’s a pretty wonderful thing when a day out in the sun getting some exercise can help spread positivity and joy in the hope of preventing more pain and inexplicable sadness being imposed on innocent individuals around the world. This is a social, global problem and Santa Barbara is proud to do its part to help stop it.
With a final fundraising goal of $200,000, the Run/Walk for Love has already raised over $42,000. While donations are always nice, the event itself is also a major factor in this push to make a difference. Those who find themselves in Santa Barbara on the first of November should definitely check out Run/Walk for Love and help celebrate the effort to make a change. Domestic Violence Solutions is an incredible foundation that makes Santa Barbara that much more of an incredible place.
