Mission: Our mission is to empower those impacted by violence and foster healthy relationships.

What are you fundraising for this year?

Fun Run donations will be used to provide advocacy, crisis support, emergency assistance, and other direct services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking in our community. Donations will also support teaching healthy relationships and violence prevention in area schools.

What impact will funds have on your mission and community?

More than 1 in 3 Montanans experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime. DSVS is the only community-based advocacy organization for our area. Donations support the disruption of generational violence in our community and the empowerment of survivors as they build safer lives.

If you participated last year, what did you use the funds for?

Last year, DSVS used our Fun Run donations to provide direct services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
