This week is a special week for me as our annual Knock Out event is this Thursday.
18 years ago(!) this week my friend Cheryl Masri and I had a desire to do something to help women. At the time I had two friends who found themselves in severely abusive relationships. One friend was thrown out of a car after being beaten so hard her husband broke his arm beating her, another one was locked in a closet after being beaten with a chair. They were stories of violence I never thought imaginable. So Cheryl and I set out on a quest to rally women to help fund shelters for victims of domestic violence, women with no place to go when their lives were in danger. We wanted create an organization that gave women a place to join together in support of other women.Close to my heart….
