On Saturday, October 6th, 2018, The Holland Police Department, in partnership with Team Hoyt, will be hosting our 2nd Annual Stop Abuse Today 5K. Proceeds will be donated to Stop Abuse Today Inc, a local nonprofit organization whose purpose is to counsel and support abuse victims, as well as to provide the public with awareness and education related to abuse prevention.

In 2001, the Holland Police Department joined forces with the Tri-Town Domestic Violence Task Force which was created after Wales resident, Sheryl Crane, was murdered by her ex-husband. Over the years, the Task Force has worked arduously to support domestic violence victims by providing counsel and education, and by raising awareness in our communities on how to break the chain of violence.

In 2017, The Task Force, which proudly served the citizens of Brimfield, Holland and Wales for more than 15 years, was designated as the charter member of Stop Abuse Today. Although domestic violence is still a major area of focus for the group, the members recognize that there is a need to expand services and resources into other areas of abuse, to include elder abuse and bullying among our youth.

We are asking that you please accept the attached flyer and distribute it to the public and your colleagues. If you wish to donate to Stop Abuse Today you may send a check made out to Stop Abuse Today, Inc. and submit it to Stop Abuse Today 27 Sturbridge Road Holland, MA 01521. The group is reliant on donations in order to operate because they do not receive direct funding from municipal or government agencies.

I would like to thank you for your time and consideration and please feel free to contact me via email bhaughey@town.holland.ma.us or voicemail 413-245-0117 ext: 330 at any time.

Online registration is scheduled to open on April 15th, 2018 https://app.racereach.com/event/stop-abuse-today-5k
