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.
