1Source teamed up with Becky’s Fund to raise awareness of domestic violence. Becky’s Fund is a non-profit organization that strives to address domestic violence in all sectors of our community. The Seventh Annual Walk This Way Event was held at the Embassy of Italy and brought in over 700 well-known Washingtonians. The event features professional athletes on the fashion runway taking a stand against domestic violence and pledging their commitment to engage in healthy relationships.
Walk This Way is their annual fundraising event which raises funds for their “Men of Code” program. The Men of Code program engages and educates coaches and young male athletes about domestic violence, transforming them into leaders working to end domestic violence against women and girls. Men of Code is one of the 23 projects chosen by the engaging Men Grant Program by the Office of Violence Against Women, Department of Justice, and commended by Vice President Biden for the efforts of Becky’s Fund’s mission to end the cycle of domestic violence.
1Source is honored to support 2015 Walk This Way. William Teel, President of 1Source says, “We applaud Becky’s Fund for their efforts to end and prevent intimate partner violence”.
