Breaking Free 5k/15k

Florence, SC

This fall, in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Pee Dee Coalition will host its 5th Annual Breaking Free event on Saturday, October 7, to support the Coalition’s Emergency Safe Shelter in Florence. 

For the Coalition, this year’s Breaking Free 5K/15K marks another special milestone.Thirty years ago, Pee Dee Coalition–a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the reduction of sexual assault, family violence, and child abuse and to serving the needs of victims–began operating what was, and still is, the region’s only 24-hour crisis line for victims and their families.

With your support, we can help victims “break free” of domestic violence and take another important step toward the Coalition’s ultimate milestone, which is to realize our vision of making this a safer, more compassionate community.
