After working for two years to become a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization, the Seventy Times Seven Center is now making their debut in Big Spring this weekend.
Their upcoming event “Just a Walk/Run in the Park!” will be this Saturday, Oct. 24th at Comanche Trail Park. Registration begins at 1 PM and the fee for the event is $25 per person. The walk/run begins at 2 PM.
There will also be a balloon release for fallen victims of domestic abuse. Other community resources will be available at the event, as well.
Bella Nelles with the Seventy Times Seven Center told KBest News that the organization is working to raise funds to purchase a home to become a shelter for battered and abused women. She advised that the organization helps both men and women, but at this time they are working to purchase a safe shelter for women and a separate area for men would come later.
The mission of the Seventy Times Seven Center is to help support the health, well being, and healing of people who are or have experienced domestic violence in their lifetime.
The organization is accepting the following donations for Saturday's event:
- hand sanitizer
- water and ice
- water coolers (maybe 5)
- snacks (nothing that can melt)
- balloons, helium, string, and tablecloths
- speaker and mic for announcements and music
