5th annual Walk Off Crime slated for September 20

NASHVILLE: You Have the Power (YHTP) will host the Fifth Annual Walk Off Crime for No More Victims at the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge (formerly the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge) at 9:30 a.m.. YHTP is partnering with the Tennessee Department of Corrections (TDOC) for the event, and the title sponsor will be TRICOR.

This 5K walk through downtown Nashville will allow participants to show support for the mission of YHTP – to educate, advocate, and empower individuals who are impacted by violent crime.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for me to give back to an agency that does so much for the empowerment of victims of violent crime. Whether a person is a victim of rape, assault, or murder, that survivor and/or their family need the support of agencies like You Have the Power.” — Honorary chair Diane Lance
