Boot n Bling 2020 Rescheduled

Boots ‘n Bling Rescheduled for September 24, 2021

Covid-19 has and will continue to add a layer of risk to victims of domestic and sexual violence. As our state reopens and we all go forward, Starting Point is prepared for a spike in disclosure and an increased need for services.

As advocates who have been addressing the pandemic of domestic and sexual violence for years, we recognize the importance of a steadfast dedication to the cause. We wish to assure you that all our crisis intervention services and programs have remained available and that we will continue providing exceptional care to victims, survivors and our community during this time of uncertainty and beyond.

After a great deal of discussion, research and careful consideration we have made the decision to reschedule our 10th Annual Boots ‘N Bling event to September 24, 2021. Our decision to skip a year is based on a sincere concern for our donors and supporters, recognizing that the path to reopening our business community and to gathering in crowds will require new considerations and careful planning.

In response to the loss of the $60k raised during Boots ‘N Bling we will be launching a virtual race, “Every Step of the Way” on June 8 through June 26, 2020. Our hope is to create greater awareness for our work, raise monies through registration fees and crowd sourcing, and most importantly to remind victims and our community that we are here for them every step of the way.

We hope you will join us in this new endeavor and make it a part of your own road to recovery and moving forward!

Stay tuned here for more information to come.

Thank you to our sponsors who have joined us in promoting our virtual race. They have been here for us every step of the way:
