While we missed gathering with our supporters at the Salem Common for the 29th Annual Walk for HAWC, we are so grateful to share that the event, held virtually this year in response to COVID-19, raised more than $84,000, surpassing our fundraising goal! Thank you to every single person who walked, donated, shared information about the event on social media, or told a friend or colleague about the Walk.

Every dollar raised by the Walk for HAWC will directly support our programs and services and will have an impact on the lives of survivors of domestic abuse.

Congratulations to the winners of our prize contests!

  • Highest Fundraising Individual: Joan Ingraham

As COVID infection trends continue to move in the right direction, we are hopeful that we can all come together again in person next year for the 30th Anniversary of the Walk for HAWC! The date for next year’s event will be announced soon so keep an eye out for this important milestone!
