Clermont Police Department will be hosting Lake County’s first “Break the Silence – Stop the Violence 5K” to benefit the Haven of Lake and Sumter Counties. The event will take place on Oct. 6, at Clermont’s Waterfront Park located at 100 3rd St., Clermont.
The Haven is an organization that provides comprehensive services to victims of domestic violence and sexual violence. Their primary objective is to provide these victims with alternatives to abuse or life-threatening situations, and empowerment to establish a violence-free life.
All proceeds will be used to help build a new pet shelter at the Haven for the pets of domestic violence and sexual violence victims.
“The Clermont Police Department encourages everyone to come out and show their support for such a worthy cause,” said Chief Charles Broadway. “We are very enthusiastic about our partnership with The Haven, and we fully support their efforts in helping victims of these unfortunate crimes.”
