Ninth Judicial District Attorney’s Office Hosts Third Annual 5K Fun Run & Walk
Ninth Judicial District Attorney Andrea R. Reeb announces that National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be observed April 19 – 25, 2015. Each April, the Office for Victims of Crime helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances by promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. This year’s theme, Engaging Communities, Empowering Victims, focuses on the role communities play providing victims with the support they need to pursue justice and recovery.
As a part of the awareness, the Ninth Judicial District Attorney’s Office will host its Third Annual 5K Fun Run and Walk on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. at the North Annex of the Clovis Carver Library. Registration is $10 and will be held the day of the event from 7:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. Event T-shirts will be available while supplies last. All money raised by this event will go to support The Oasis Children’s Advocacy Center.
District Attorney Andrea Reeb said, “This family-oriented event will kick off a week dedicated to recognizing victims of crimes and those that serve them. I encourage members of the local area to attend the Fun Run & Walk and help raise community awareness about the important work of providing crime victims in our community with both the short- and long-term help they need as they recover on their terms.”
In an effort to bring communities together and show support for crime victims, the District Attorney’s Office has designated Friday, April 24th , as “Denim Day.”
The District Attorney’s Office is also conducting a food drive to benefit The Hartley House, a crisis prevention center and shelter for victims of domestic violence. Collection sites are: The Clovis and Portales DA’s Offices, ENMU Information Desk and The Hartley House at 900 N. Main, Clovis.
