An Outpouring of Support for MAAV’s 18th Annual Walk & Candlelight Vigil
It was an incredible day! Close to 500 people of all ages took part in our Annual Walk & Candlelight Vigil on October 20 to raise awareness about domestic violence. Our theme this year was “Stories That Move Us,” with a guest speaker and community art project that illustrated the power of stories and words. We had a record-breaking 45 teams, including 14 new teams. The event started at the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School with a Candlelight Vigil, commemorating the victims of domestic violence homicide since last year’s Vigil. Together we renewed our commitment to ending violence in our community. Thank you to everyone who turned out to support this annual community-wide event. Check out photos here of the Walk, Candlelight Vigil, teams, helpers, friends and families!
