Walk to End Domestic Violence raises money for anti-abuse hotline

    Philadelphia’s Walk to End Domestic Violence is hosted by someone who’s familiar with spousal abuse.

    Sen. LeAnna Washington will host Sunday’s walk to raise money for programs that aim to help people who went through what she did: frequent beatings and abuse at the hands of her husband of eight years and father of her three children.

    The Saturday morning walk on West River Drive will raise money for the Philadelphia Domestic Violence Hotline, a 24-hour bilingual hotline operated by four anti-abuse programs. Rain or shine, the walk will mark four years of the efforts against domestic violence.

    Registration begins at 9 a.m.
