COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - On Monday night, Thiq fitness teamed up with the community or a fundraiser aimed at bringing awareness to the dangerous issue of domestic violence.
Leaders say that while their events are fun and light-hearted, they want to raise awareness of what a serious problem domestic violence is in our area as well as empower local women to stand up against it.
Leaders of the event say it was held in honor of a local woman who was killed following a domestic violence incident earlier this year.
Instead of paying their regular walk in fee, the fitness studio clients were asked to donate money to a good cause. Thiq Fitness says the funds raised at the event will go to assisting Deann’s sister and brother in law as they fight for custody of her two youngest children.
