Baltimore, MD – Restoration Temple Apostolic Center is joining Journey's Creative Writing Center and The Women's Institute for the 5th Annual Walkathon and Run, a local and national effort launched by Rev Dr. Jean Donnell to engage more Baltimoreans around domestic violence. According to the National Coalition of Domestic Violence……….,

- On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. ...
- 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.
"In these tough economic and political times, we must raise awareness around issues of battered women, and we need awareness and community support more than ever," said the Rev Dr. Jean Donnell, pastor of Restoration Temple Apostolic Center.
Please register in advance by calling Restoration Temple Apostolic Center at 410-483-5433. Early registration includes t-shirt and a goodie bag. Registration on site is subject to a $5 late fee.
