Race4Love has its origins in the Tate/Coursen Memorial Walk/Run that was organized by Marie Tate in 2012. The event honored Lance Cpl. Dana Tate and Cpl. Dyke “A.J.” Coursen, two Beaufort County Sheriff’s deputies who were killed when responding to a domestic violence call in 2002.
Lance Cpl. Dana Tate's widow, Marie Tate, organized the event to honor her husband and his partner, and to raise funds for Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse (CODA), a nonprofit organization providing shelter, legal services, counseling, advocacy and outreach to survivors of domestic violence in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties.
With this year's event, Race4Love has raised more than $100,000 for Hopeful Horizons and every dollar raised has supported the goal of helping survivors of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault in Beaufort County and the surrounding counties. Funds raised help Hopeful Horizons in its mission to end abuse and change lives.
“We are grateful for the sponsors and volunteers who came together once again to support Race4Love,” said Kristin Dubrowski, CEO of Hopeful Horizons. “Survivors of abuse need the support of the entire community, and this is one way you can show your support and help to raise awareness.”
Hopeful Horizons is a children's advocacy, domestic violence and rape crisis center that works to create safer communities by changing the culture of violence and offering a path to healing. The organization provides safety, hope and healing to survivors through evidence-based practices, outreach, prevention and education. Hopeful Horizons serves Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, Jasper and Allendale counties. For more information, visit www.hopefulhorizons.org.
