another year…


Another year has passed, but you’re in our thoughts and hearts every single day, Siobhan.

THANK You!!! DASH at Dulles 2015


THANK YOU!! Once again, our loyal supporters came through and walked their way to almost $750 in donations to DASH during our 5th Annual DASH at Dulles 5k Mall Walk. We were so happy to have over 30 participants and to include Lynne and Andy Russell via Skype from sunny France.

Special thanks to Dulles Town Center and its staff for always being so accommodating, especially with the change in dates due to the inclement weather.

We can’t do our important work educating teens, their parents and friends about teen dating abuse without you! Always remembering you, Siobhan.
