Running Out Of Silence Walk

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Dozens of people gathered at MSU-Billings today to participate in Running out of Silence.

The event aims to raise awareness of domestic abuse in Montana. Participants had the opportunity to run or walk a one or five-mile course.

Other activities included face painting, games, and a silent auction. Informational booths were also available.

Organizer Jamie Rindahl says all proceeds benefit Montana Mental Health, the Gateway House, and the YWCA to help victims of domestic abuse.

"If they're in an emergency situation, they can call the Gateway House, and they have a place for them to go immediately. If you need counseling, or help of any sort, you can call the YWCA or the Montana Mental Health, and you can get those mental health services. And if you need to go to the hospital or anything, but do let somebody know that you're in need of help," said Rindahl, DVAAS President.

Jamie says there are over 600,000 cases of domestic violence across America, and only 20-percent are reported.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
