Raising Awareness for Domestic Abuse: The Morning Show Interview



Bookmark and Share

It's a serious topic, one that often goes without being discussed, but an event coming up in September has a goal to raise awareness to domestic abuse while getting the family involved and have a little fun in the process.

Miss SDSU, Heather Johnson joined us on the set of KDLT News Today Monday morning to tell us more about the "Cycle to Stop the Cycle" event taking place this fall to benefit the Brookings Domestic Abuse Shelter.

This is the fifth year the event has taken place and is a fundraiser for the shelter. Every year the event has grown, with more than 100 riders last year. There will be routes to accommodate all levels of bicyclists from 3, 6, 24, and 40 miles. Of course, if you don't want to ride you can always sponsor a rider to still help the shelter raise their goal of $10,000.

Riders raising the most money in pledges will be eligible to win one of 4 prizes including 4 free massages donated by Brookings Chiropractic, a $250 gift certificate to spend at Sioux River Bicycles and Fitness, a one year membership to the Children's Museum of South Dakota and finally, a bike donated by Sioux River Bicycles and Fitness.

The registration fee is $30 for individuals and $60 for a family. Food, fun and games will follow the ride back at the Brookings County Extension Center (east side of the Swiftel Center).

The event is September 24, with registration starting at 8 a.m. and the ride beginning at 9 a.m.

100 Percent of the proceeds benefit the Brookings Domestic Abuse Shelter. Last year the shelter provided services to 412 people, sheltered 69 individuals, and had 4,379 client whether on the phone or in person.
