Now in its 11th year, Northampton’s annual Hot Chocolate Run raises money for Safe Passage and its programming to support victims of domestic violence. Greta Hagen, assistant director of development, reports that this past December’s event brought in a record-breaking 6,000 runners and walkers. “It was an amazing turnout, and we raised $485,000,” she says. “We have a great relationship with the town, but it’s all about people reaching out to their neighbors, colleagues, and friends.” Since 2014, Safe Passage has doubled the size of its children’s programs, and the group has plans to expand the prevention program this year to support the economic healing of survivors of financial abuse.
