Plans are well underway for the 2nd annual Domestic Violence conference, scheduled for Purple Shirt Day, Friday, October 20th from 9:00 to 12:00, sponsored by my company, Creative Communication Network, and benefiting Hope’s Door and the New Beginning Center in Garland. The theme this year is: “Are We Winning the War on Domestic Violence?”
I will again serve as Host and Moderator. We will have five expert speakers representing different perspectives in society, to candidly answer what we have accomplished, where we have failed, and what we need to do differently in the future. We already have commitments from these four participants:
Christina Coultas – Texas Association Against Sexual Assualt
Tracy Grinstead-Everly – Texas Council on Family Violence
Sandra Bond Chapman, Ph.D. – University of Texas at Dallas
Wendy Sheriff – City of Garland Police Department
The liaison for us at Hope’s Door and the New Beginning Center is Ryan Thomas, the Community Education Director.
Mark your calendars! And, please stay tuned for more information about location, pricing, donations, and much more!
Our Creative Communication Network-sponsored team did a great job at today’s 5K race, Running for Clean Water, at O’Banion Middle School in Garland.
I want to thank all the contributors to this event from the First Friday Book Synopsis, who donated funds to support this cause, and allowed CCN to be a gold-level sponsor. We contributed $1,158 to the event.
Pictured below are the runners. From L-R, Juli Branson, Karl Krayer, Narcy Gonzalez, Carmen Coreas, Katherine Hernandez, and Elva Aldana. FYI – I did not run – I am a sponsor.
While I am grateful to all of our runners who participated, I am particularly proud of two of them. Our part-time CCN facilitator and international consultant, Carmen Coreas, trained for, and ran the 5K in just over 40:00. She is pictured crossing the finish line above.
And, one of our runners, Katherine Hernandez, was #1 in the age 18-29 female category of the race, finishing with a 25:19 time.
Again this year, Creative Communication Network is a major sponsor of a charitable endeavor, which is Running 4 Clean Water. At the April First Friday Book Synopsis, we will solicit and accept tax-deductible contributions.
Last year, our event donated over $1,900 to the charity. The proceeds from the race go directly to building wells in Sierra Leone, Africa, where over 9,000 people per day die because of the lack of clean water!
The actual 5K race is on Saturday, April 29, at O’Banion Middle School in Garland. The school’s address is 700 Birchwood Drive, Garland, Texas 75043. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. That race is followed a fun 1K race. We are looking for interested runners to be a part of the CCN team this year. Pictured is our 2016 running team, along with Karl J. Krayer, President of CCN. Four of the runners won medals for one of the fastest times in their respective divisions.
