help end domestic violence
The Gentleman Campaign
Do you know that according to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence within their lifetime? Waypoint established the Gentleman Campaign© in 2013 in an effort to spread awareness about domestic violence and encourage community involvement. Throughout the month of October, events are held that recognize the individuals, especially men, who are taking a stand with Waypoint to end domestic violence.
Gentleman Campaign© Events:
- Apparel Sales: Purchasing Gentleman Campaign© gear to show your support
- Gentleman Day: Wear your Gentleman Campaign© gear on October 21 to spread awareness on ending domestic violence
- Benefit Motorcycle Ride: Join Waypoint on October 10 for the 8th Annual Ride to end domestic violence
