HARTFORD — Domestic violence organizations across Connecticut are planning to hold walks to raise both awareness and the funds needed to provide services to survivors.

Six “Walks Against Domestic Violence” will kick off on the morning of Sunday, October 6. They’re scheduled to take place at Parish Hill Middle/High School in Chaplin; the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury; Bruce Park in Greenwich; Harbor Park in Middletown; Crystal Mall in Waterford; and the University of St. Joseph in West Hartford.

Some walks require a registration fee while others ask walkers to set a fundraising goal. You can find more information on the website of the CT Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

The money raised from the events will be used to help pay for local emergency domestic violence shelters and other services to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and trafficking.
