Tinley Park, IL — The Crisis Center for South Suburbia’s (CCSS) Auxiliary will host their 8th Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence on Saturday, August 6, 2016 — rain or shine. The Auxiliary is taking action by walking at Lake Katherine Nature Preserve in Palos Heights, IL. Check-in for the day will begin at 8:00am and the walk will last from 9am to 11am. The distance of the walk is approximately 1 mile. What better way to spend a Saturday morning than by getting active for a worthy cause? This event is welcome to all ages and serves as an excellent way to get everyone involved in the journey to ending domestic violence.
The Auxiliary promotes awareness of CCSS throughout the Chicago Southland by increasing its volunteer base, increasing revenue through fundraising activities, and providing opportunities for men and women to share their common interests and commitment to helping victims of domestic violence. Formed in 2008, the Auxiliary has been able to fund many special projects through their fundraising efforts. All proceeds will benefit the CCSS clients.
All adult walkers will receive a free t-shirt and water. Participants also have the opportunity to buy in to the Auxiliary raffle for chances to win great prizes. Representatives from the Crisis Center will also be in attendance to answer questions about the mission and services of CCSS.
Registration has begun and forms are available at online https://crisisctr.org/events/ccss-auxiliary/ and can be mailed to CCSS Auxiliary, PO Box 174, Palos Park, IL 60465. The registration fee is $15 per person. Ages 12 and under are free. Checks or money orders are accepted made payable to the CCSS Auxiliary.
The Crisis Center for South Suburbia is a non-profit community organization that provides emergency shelter and other essential services for individuals and families victimized by domestic violence. Learn more at www.crisisctr.org.
