EVENT: Refuse To Abuse® 5K 2017
I am a survivor of Domestic Violence and sexual abuse. I left my abusive relationship 4 years ago. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, depression, and have panic attacks because of the trauma I have experienced. However, every day is a day I am thankful for because I am alive. I use my experience to help others understand and to advocate about these horrible things that shouldn't happen. I hope that by advocating I can help someone find their strength to leave. This is my 3rd year in a row doing this 5k. If you would like to read a bit more about my story you can find it on my blog at https://myhealingjourney90.wordpress.com/. There is no excuse for abuse!
