On Saturday, April 30, 2011, several Noble Gas Solutions employees and their family membersÂ participated in the Sexual Assault & Crime Victims Assistance Program of Rensselaer Countyâ€™s Walk aÂ Mile in Her ShoesÂ® walk-a-thon. Walking as a team they proudly raised more than $5,500. Total fundsÂ raised for the event exceeded $34,000.
These funds will help provide services to sexual assault victims/survivors and their families that mayÂ include: counseling, support groups, therapy, legal advocacy, forensic exams, referrals, assistance withÂ compensation claims, and more.
Did you know thatâ€¦
- one woman is raped and/or physically assaulted everyÂ three minutes in the U.S.?
- as many as 1 out of 4 children will be sexually molestedÂ before the age of 18, and in 90% of these cases theÂ victim knows the assailant(s)?
- battering is the major cause of injury to women, resultingÂ in more injuries than auto accidents, muggings, andÂ rapes combined?
- for every reported incident, approximately 14 go unreported?
