Victims’ Services Program gives thanks

The Times-Tribune

CORBIN — The staff of the Victims’ Services Program at Cumberland River Comprehensive Care would like to thank the community for their support during our Sexual Assault Awareness Month activities.

We especially thank everyone who made our Tri-County Conquer 5K a success. It was a success in many different ways including raising awareness about the issue of sexual assault as well as raising money. Approximately 80 people either participated in or volunteered in the 5K and approximately $1,200 was raised.

We thank the following businesses for their contributions: Road ID, Sherry’s Tomato Grill, Cracker Barrel, Gondolier, Regency Cinema 8, Kroger, Books-a-Million, Mi Casa, Vega Photography, Family Hair Designs, Beauty Works, Union College Bookstore, B&H Shoe Store of Corbin, Rack Room Shoes, Laurel Cookie Factory, Flav-O-Rich, Patriot Steakhouse, Dino’s and Christopher Chiropractics. We also thank both the Times-Tribune and the Corbin News Journal for their coverage of the event.

We appreciate the assistance of Constable Ron Bowling and the Corbin City Police Department in providing traffic control as well as the Whitley County Emergency Squad in providing medical support. We also appreciate Rep. Regina Bunch in supporting our mission by participating in the awarding of medals.

We would not have been able to host the 5K without the wonderful support of our volunteers. Thank you very much for your help in making our Sexual Assault Awareness Month event a great success.

We are fortunate to live and work in a community where collaboration, concern for others and a willingness to help are highly valued. We hope to continue to work with you in the future. We appreciate your commitment to our agency and your commitment to end sexual violence.
