For years, members from the corporate and civic community have joined in benefitting the thousands of survivors that CASFV and the Women’s Center of Brazoria County help. This year there is a unique fundraising event that will impact survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Dr. Greg Dillion will be cycling with his 19-year-old daughter, Mya “YaYa” Dillon, from San Diego, California to El Paso to help raise awareness and funds that will go towards CASFV’s and the Women’s Center of Brazoria County efforts.
CASFV and the Women’s Center of Brazoria County empower families who remain exposed to community food insecurities, job loss, and homelessness which continues to make them vulnerable to victimization. This “Break the Cycle, Raise Awareness” will raise money that will help empower victims by continuing essential services like emergency shelter, crisis hotline, transitional living center, sexual assault services, case management, therapy, and support services.
This will be a trying ride as they plan to ride one thousand miles from San Diego, CA est. April 02, 2023, and arrive in El Paso Texas on est. April 12, 2023.
“Another opportunity to bring awareness and amplify the needs of survivors due to sexual and family violence. Not only is there the need to educate the community, but to grow more resources and funding to support those in the communities who due to limited resources desire to do more.”-Dr. Gregory Dillon
“Growing up, I’ve always had a passion to make a change for something. I’ve lost some friends to domestic violence, and I’m doing this ride to raise awareness. I hope this ride will help focus attention on strengthening the capacity of institutions in charge of helping victims.”-Mya “YaYa” Dillon
