February 25, 2017 – Houston
RCP is a proud sponsor of the Houston Area Women’s Center (HAWC), a local non-profit organization committed to helping individuals affected by domestic and sexual violence move their lives forward. They offer a variety of services including shelter, counseling and advocacy. They also seek to end domestic and sexual violence through community awareness and education. Please join RCP as we support HAWC by participating in the 29th Annual Race Against Violence on the morning of Saturday, February 25th.

Editor’s note: I know the HAWC because of the efforts of one of our employees (who is awesome!). This isn’t just some feel-good organization. HAWC does real work to help real victims of domestic violence. There are more than 100 murders (not counting “violence”) each year in Texas among domestic partners, with most (but not all) of the victims being women. So let’s try to fix that.
Editor’s second note: I don’t “run” (my body isn’t built for running…), but I can (and do) provide moral and financial support for this worthy cause. I hope you can provide support, too. See you at the run!
