Puppy Parade for Sexual Assault Awareness Tonight

Local residents and their dogs are invited to stretch their legs tonight in a walk designed to raise awareness of the problem of sexual assault. 

Dial Help’s Puppy Parade will begin at 5:30 at Ray Kestner Waterfront Park… 

We’re going to have an entire course laid out from the downtown by the water, and it’s going to pop up and go through downtown Houghton.

That’s Dial Help’s Paige Setter-Hallwachs, who admits sexual assault is a tough topic to talk about. The social setting, and the dogs, help put people at ease…

This is a great way that we found to have built-in emotional support.

All are invited to join the walk. Please bring only dogs that socialize well with other dogs, and in crowds. If you can’t make the walk tonight, the signs for the route will be left in place through the weekend.

Dial Help offers a number of support options for victims of sexual assault. If you need such services, call their office.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and you can hear Todd VanDykie’s interview with Setter-Hallwachs and Virginia Lambert on the April 17th edition of Copper Country Today at KeweenawReport.com.
