Join us on Sunday, October 22 for MAAV’s 22nd Annual Walk & Candlelight Vigil, as we come together to speak out against violence and honor the 19 victims of domestic violence in our state over the past year. The event starts at 4:00 pm at the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School.
Melrose Run for Women Raises Valuable Funds for MAAV
A little rain didn’t dampen the spirits of those who participated in the 22nd Annual Melrose Run for Women! This beloved Mother’s Day tradition took place on May 12 and was organized by the Melrose Running Club.
On June 25, MAAV was thrilled and honored to be presented with a check for $18,000, proceeds raised from the race. This year’s donation will fund educational programs on healthy relationships at the middle and high school levels, and our weekly support group for victims and survivors of domestic violence.
We’d like to thank Race Director Liz Tassinari and her terrific team for their dedication and hard work, and the many local businesses that served as sponsors. Thanks to the support of the Melrose Running Club, we will continue our work to make Melrose a stronger, safer community.
