Every quarter the team at Roots Dental – Hollywood donates volunteer hours and raises money for organizations who educate, support and empower domestic abuse survivors and their children. We were thrilled to find an organization called ARMS, Abuse Recovery Ministry Services, who transform the lives of abuse survivors and their children through healing and intervention.
The Stomp Out Abuse 5k/10k is in it’s 9th year and ARMS recently celebrated their 21st year helping victims of domestic violence. In that time they have helped over 26,000 survivors take back their lives and regain the confidence to carry their lives forward in a positive light.
Domestic violence is the #1 cause of injury to women in the USA. 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence in an intimate relationship in their lifetime and every 9 seconds a woman is beaten. We ran in this event to help victims regain the power and control that has been stripped away from them and we joined countless other supporters by putting our feet on the ground to help Stomp Out Abuse.
