The 5th Annual “Dani’s Journey” fundraiser.
Dani’s family raised over $5,000 at the fundraiser for the Dani’s Journey Education Fund, through which TWC staff do outreach and educational programming about teen dating violence, healthy coping skills and AODA. In 2017, Dani’s Journey Education Fund partnered with the Marathon County AOD Partnership and Mosinee Middle and High School to bring the group Rise Together to Mosinee Middle and High School. Middle and high school presentations focused on education, advocacy, and encouraged students to speak out on the issues they care most about; breaking the silence around suicide, bullying, mental illness, drugs & alcohol. A parent and public presentation with dinner and a movie screening was offered in the evening on the dangers of drugs and alcohol, understanding addiction, and providing resources to those in need of support in hopes the conversation will continue at home with parents. This program was funded by Dani’s Journey Education Fund. Other programming throughout the year included funding for a group called “My Choice” through John Muir Middle School addressing resiliency issues for 7th graders attending the group.

Thank you to Ollie, an 8th grade student that visited The Women’s Community on a school field trip. That was the moment she was encouraged to become a supporter. After learning to make blankets during a school project, Ollie wanted to use her new skill to do something greater. With the help of her parents and school teachers, Ollie was able to acquire enough fabric to make 10 blankets. She spent 3 months making blankets for survivors, with encouraging messages clipped to them.
