Vonnie’s Voice 2nd Annual 5k Walk/Run
It’s time to start lacing up those running shoes! The 2nd Annual Vonnie’s Voice 5k Walk Run is in Leadville on Saturday, August 4 at 8 a.m. Why not do something good for yourself and the Leadville community!?
This family-fun event is a fundraiser for the Vonnie’s Voice Committee whose mission is to raise awareness and strengthen legislation concerning stalking in Colorado.
The inaugural Vonnie’s Voice 5k walk/run raised money for projects including: winter coats for students where Miss Vonnie was a kindergarten teacher, the Family Crisis Center, two $1,500 Vonnie’s Voice Scholarships and various local programs and activities for kids.
Most importantly, the Vonnie’s Voice Committee’s reached its primary objective to strengthen Colorado stalking laws when Gov. Hickenlooper signed Vonnie’s Law – HB12-1114 on May 11, 2012. The measure had passed unanimously on every level of the Colorado Legislature in ONE MONTH! There is specific information about the law on the website.
But there is still more work to be done and we’re counting on your continued support! We hope to see you at the start line. Or if you want to hit the snooze button, you can sleep in and donate instead. For more information: Vonnie’s Voice, P.O. Box 1986, Leadville, CO 80461 or log on to: www.VonniesVoice.org
