Taking Strides To End Domestic Violence
Remembering Teresa Scholarship Applicants for the Remembering Teresa Scholarship are required to volunteer their time at a local women's shelter and then write a short essay regarding their experience.
We welcome you to take part in the 6th Annual Remembering Teresa 5K Run/Walk. This event is designed to help raise awareness of Domestic Violence and the effects it can have on a community. The money raised at this event will be used to provide a scholarship in honor of Teresa Williams to a high school graduate interesting in the nursing field and to support our local domestic violence shelter.

Teresa was our friend and co-worker, mom, cousin, and daughter. We not only have family and friends that help plan this event but people who never knew Teresa yet understand the importance of stopping Domestic Violence. Domestic Violence was what took Teresa from us and why we are so passionate about supporting Brighter Tomorrows and their efforts to educate and support victims. Five years ago Teresa was at her home with her daughter when her estranged husband broke into her home. With her daughter upstairs he shot her in the back and left the house. The aftermath of this evil has been wide spread and the healing is slow and difficult. Teresa is remembered every day by family and friends, her smiling face, laughter and amazing presence will never be forgotten. We honor her memory by supporting Brighter Tomorrows so this doesn't have to happen to others.
