Hubbard House Walks the Walk

Hubbard House – and more than 1,000 supporters – came together for the organization’s 14th Annual Stand Up & Stride Domestic Violence Awareness Walk, presented by Pajcic & Pajcic, on Saturday, April 15, at 8 a.m. at the Riverfront Plaza. The family-friendly event featured games and activities for children, a newly added enrichment zone for dogs, guest appearances and energizing music along the one-mile route. The event exceeded its $100,000 fundraising goal to support local survivors of domestic violence and their families.

“Leaving an abusive relationship is never easy, but Hubbard House gives survivors that chance. It is not just a shelter. Hubbard House literally saves lives,” said Hubbard House Board President Janeen Mira.

Hubbard House serves Duval and Baker counties through emergency shelter and support services like counseling and job coaching.

“It is so important for survivors of domestic violence to know they are not alone. Hubbard House is here for you. And events like this show our community is here for you too,” said Hubbard House Chief Development & Administration Officer Kristi Brandon.
