Lastly, a portion of the funds raised from Randi’s race has been donated to support fourlocal domesticviolence programs and other community agencies.
“Randi’s Race provides me the opportunity to reach the community in creating awareness of how domestic violence impacts children,” said Nancy Chavez, Chairwoman of Randi’s House of Angels and Randi Trimble’s mother. “It is my hope that the community will recognize that domestic violence affects children in so many ways and Randi’s House of Angels can provide therapeutic services/programs to children to help them lead a stress-free life,” she added.
Since her daughter’s death in January 2003, Nancy has been an advocate for victims of domestic violence. In 2011, she established Randi’s House of Angels, a project of the Foundation for Enhancing Communities (fiscal sponsor) that fulfills her dream of helping children who are exposed to and are victims of domestic violence.
Retired Pennsylvania State Senator Pat Vance, advocate for victims of domestic violence, is honorary chair of the event.

Just before race time, Randi’s Kids Fun Run is held for children under 8. Refreshments, entertainment and door prizes are also offered. Donations will be accepted up to June 30, 2018.
