Join the Headwaters Intervention Center staff and volunteers in the Walk to End Domestic Violence.

The walk begins at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 25 in front of the Hubbard County Courthouse. Walkers will follow a route toward Heartland Park then end at the Headwaters Intervention Center. An open house will be held at the office after the walk, with coffee, hot chocolate, water, cookies and snacks.

Support the HIC in working to win the battle against domestic violence.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the HIC organized this walk to coincide with the awareness activities.

At last year's walk, participants carried signs with messages such as "I am against domestic violence" and "Domestic violence will not go away on its own. Take a stand."

The HIC is a 30-year-old non-profit agency in Park Rapids dedicated to helping all victims of domestic violence and child abuse. Located in Park Rapids, the organization also has a satellite office in Bagley. For more information, call 732-7413. The crisis line is 800-939-2199.
