Title: Charity places - Oasis Domestic Abuse Refuge and Service
Post by: Ed Heardman on May 23, 2013, 06:17:09 PM
Please read on for details of charity running events - thanks, Ed….

Oasis Domestic Abuse Refuge and Service are a Thanet based charity, looking for runners willing to help raise the vital funds we need.
Every week two women die from Domestic Abuse. At Oasis we help rehabilitate women and children who have survived Domestic Abuse. We provide mentoring schemes to help educate teenagers to prevent negative relationships developing, as well as specialist support for families affected by Domestic Abuse, enabling women to regain independence and confidence.
70% of our residents are children. It is important, therefore, to emphasise that the specialist work we do to combat the long lasting psychological trauma Domestic Abuse causes children.
We currently have 3 people doing the Great British 10 K July 14th but more are welcome to join the team.
Also there is the Deal Dinosaur Race 10km July 21st and the Ashford PodPlus 3 Lakes 5k June 23rd.
We are also looking for a group of people for the Fowlmead Country Park Assault Course Race  Oct 6th
If any of your members would like to sign up for these events on our behalf, please ask them to contact me for more information about booking and our sponsorship pack at
Kind Regards
