Do you want to do more to raise awareness for victims of crime and those that help them? Join us for our first-ever 5K Walk dedicated to crime victims in Fairfax County in honor of the 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

This free event is hosted by the Victims Services Section of the Fairfax County Police Department and the Fairfax County Law Enforcement Foundation kicks off at Fairfax Corner at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 21. Join the caring professionals that support local victims of homicide, trauma, sexual and domestic violence, child physical and sexual abuse, stalking human trafficking and suicide as they walk together.

The event will feature a resource fair, live jazz, rhythm & blues by the E & ME Band, opening remarks by Fairfax County Commonwealth Attorney Ray Morrogh,  a candlelight vigil in honor of victims at the conclusion of the walk, and moving remarks from Ms. Lorraine Reed Whoberry, a homicide survivor and founder of the S.T.A.C.I.E. Foundation. DASH will have a table at the resource fair.
