Event Supports Mission to End Sexual Violence

Mount Ida was almost 100 walkers-strong at the Walk for Change event to benefit the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) and the work the Center does in support of sexual assault survivors and their families.

“The Mount Ida Mustangs team raised over $1,000 and we were the largest team at the Walk this year,” says Beth Grampetro, Director of Mount Ida Wellness Services.

“It’s our second year of doing the Walk for Change as a group and we are proud to be a sponsor.”

The Walk, held on April 23, raised over $200,000 for BARCC. BARCC is the only provider of comprehensive rape crisis services in the greater Boston area. These services include a 24-hour hotline and hospital accompaniment, as well as legal and community education programs. In the last year alone, BARCC has helped over 4,000 survivors and their loved ones and another 10,000 people through prevention education, training and outreach.
