This morning was the walk for a change, the 10th annual walk that Boston Area Rape Crisis Center did to raise awareness about sexual assault, and fundraise so they can continue to offer many free services to sexual assault victims.
My sponsor’s and I raised $500.00!!! This was my first year participating, and although I didn’t reach my personal goal, I am beyond thrilled that we raised $ 500.00!
The morning was full of mixed emotions. I was happy and empowered to be doing something to raise awareness, help, and try and make a difference; but the sad fact of why I was personally there would not escape my mind.
There was an area that had survivors who made t-shirts depicting their stories on display. I lost it. It was so sad, but it also made me feel that I am not alone.
I’m happy that I did this, and I definitely plan to participate in future events!
Tiny Tanner was not thrilled about the post event photo shoot that I did, but I got a few good pictures. …lol
