All revenue generated through this race will be donated to benefit the Heartly House. Heartly House, Inc. has been helping Frederick County residents, for over 30 years, who have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. "We run so she doesn't have to."

Domestic violence is a pattern of behavior where one person exerts power or control over another through physical, psychological, emotional, verbal, sexual, and/or economic abuse. Domestic violence can happen to anyone. Thank you for helping us break the cycle of abuse.
