Steppin’ Up to End Violence is a unique community event and fundraiser that Turning Points Network has held in Claremont for 13 years and counting. It is the signature fundraising event for TPN. Every year it grows and expands, due mainly to the incredible individuals and teams “steppin’ up” to walk, stroll, jog or run to end violence in their communities. Last year, Steppin’ Up raised over $71,000 for survivors and programs - an amazing achievement! The funds generated from Steppin’ Up go towards support, services, and programs for survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking in Sullivan County, as well as toward our prevention education programs in local schools. These programs cover topics such as healthy relationships, respect, compassion, bullying, personal safety, and sexual harassment. Some of our services to survivors include a 24-hour crisis and support line, emergency shelter, peer counseling, support groups, court, medical and social services advocacy, and a safe home network. All of our services are free to survivors. Visit www.turningpointsnetwork.org for more info
