In response to the COVID-19 virus and in efforts to keep our community safe, CHANA’s Race Against Abuse is going VIRTUAL! Please join us on Sunday, May 10, as we raise awareness about domestic violence, sexual abuse and elder abuse, and fundraise for CHANA’s mission to empower survivors and rally together to end abuse in our community.

What is a Virtual Race?

Because can’t officially “be” together, doesn’t mean we can’t “come” together as a community to support the important mission of CHANA.  A virtual race means that you get to choose where and what time you participate in the #raceagainstabuse, we just ask that you participate on May 10th. Share your training progress on social media and running apps such as Strava in advance of race day and on the actual day. Join in this great opportunity to get outside and exercise and support those in your community that need it the most.

As one of our largest fundraisers of the year, CHANA depends on the Race Against Abuse to help fund our crisis intervention services, emergency shelters, counseling, legal advocacy and safety planning services. While this is a difficult time for all of us, many of CHANA’s clients are in a heightened state of danger due to being confined and isolated in their homes with their abusers. Participating in CHANA’s Race Against Abuse is a way to stand up against domestic violence in our community, be a voice for those who are suffering, and let them know they are not alone! Register today!

Help CHANA Reach Those in Need During COVID-19

Every day at CHANA, we are committed to the health and safety of all members of our community. We know that this may be a particularly frightening and isolating time for victims and survivors of abuse and trauma and their children. We also know that people are especially vulnerable to sexual and domestic violence during the chaos and uncertainty that accompanies a natural disaster, crisis or state of emergency like the one we are currently experiencing. As the situation with the Coronavirus Pandemic is affecting nearly every aspect of our lives, tensions remain high. During a time when companies are advising employees to work remotely and the government is recommending social distancing, victims may be isolated in their homes or in proximity to their abuser for extended periods of time. These factors can create situations where safety is compromised and danger escalates. CHANA is here to help.

Throughout this crisis, CHANA will continue to provide a full spectrum of essential services, including emergency shelter, crisis intervention, counseling, legal advocacy, and safety planning, while following best practices and guidance from federal, state and local health partners as the situation unfolds.
