Help our community fight against Domestic Violence!  

Recently, a local young, kind Mother in our community, Amanda Boring was a victim to domestic violence and lost her life at the hands of her abuser while her child watched.  This sounds unthinkable, and the truth is that this is all too common. This horrific tragedy could have been prevented. 

Please consider supporting this 5K to help raise awareness about domestic violence and directly support Amanda’s two surviving children. It is time to break the silence and let people in our community know that there are services readily available to help those in fear, to help them break free.  We can do better supporting those most in need. 

Below you will find the contact information for the Cambria-Somerset Women's Help Center.  The Help Center provides domestic abuse assistance and emergency shelter for women, men, and their children who are experiencing abuse within their home:
