Today’s news:

Brooklynites race against violence with W.A.V.

Big-hearted Brooklynites pounded the pavement against the perils of aggressive behavior during the 11th annual “Race Against Violence” at John Paul Jones Park.

Presented by Women Against Violence, the run/walk drew a large crowd of participants to the sprawling green where guest speakers championed participants and their efforts to help raise money, and spotlight the scourge of violent behavior.

A post-race party at the park, 4th Avenue and 101st, culminated the fundraiser.

Since 1999, Women Against Violence has provided education, prevention and recovery services to women and their families in New York City. All WAV programs are administered through BWS, a multi-specialty healthcare center affiliated with Maimonides Medical Center.
