Step Up for Violence Prevention!

Steppin’ Up to End Violence is a unique community event and fundraiser that Turning Points Network has held in Claremont for ten years and counting. It is the signature fundraising event for TPN. Every year it grows and expands, due mainly to the incredible individuals and teams “steppin’ up” to walk, stroll, jog or run to end violence in their communities. Last year, Steppin’ Up raised over $80,000 for survivors and programs - an amazing achievement!


The funds generated from Steppin' Up go towards support, services, and programs for survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking in Sullivan County, as well as to our prevention education programs in local schools. These programs cover topics such as healthy relationships, respect, empathy, bullying, body safety, and sexual harassment. Some of our services to survivors include a 24-hour crisis and support line, emergency shelter, peer counseling, support groups, court, medical and social services advocacy, and a safe home network. All of our services are free to survivors.

The Walk-Run Route

Parking for Steppin’ Up is available at Claremont Middle School, in the nearby Monadnock Park parking lot on Chestnut Street, at the Arrowhead Recreation Area at 18 Robert Easter Way, or at the Claremont Savings Bank on Broad Street.

Structure of Event

There is no registration fee to participate in Steppin’ Up; the majority of funds raised for TPN at this event are raised through the efforts of individuals and teams. Teams can number any size – from 2 people to 100! They can include your family, friends, or the employees of your entire company. Individuals and teams fundraise through pledge forms and/or our online fundraising site, FirstGiving, or any number of other creative ideas. Past ideas have included bake sales, auctions, raffle baskets, and bingo nights. Runners are welcome and encouraged to participate. Although Steppin’ Up is not a competitive run, there is a large display clock for self-timing and there will be prizes for the top finishing runners.


To fundraise online, please visit our Steppin’ Up to End Violence FirstGiving page. There you can create your own personal or team page and begin fundraising!
