Special thanks to the Save the Next Girl club of James River High School (Buchanan, VA) and their counselor Lauren Mioduszewski for hosting a DASH presentation at their first meeting of the year! It was wonderful to share Siobha’s legacy with such an attentive group.
Help Save the Next Girl is a non-profit group in memory of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington who was abducted and murdered in 2009 (the same year Siobhan was murdered). For more information go to http://helpsavethenextgirl.com.

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.

On January 27, The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors declared February 2015 as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Sponsored by Vice Chairman Penelope Gross and Braddock District Supervisor John C. Cook the board presented the proclamation to Chantilly Youth Group Director Carmen Vargas. Wendy Claunch was happy to be included as the representative for DASH! Let’s make it a priority to spread the word about teen dating violence to our community during February!
