Registration is Now Open!

Help support and empower survivors of intimate partner violence in Middlesex County by joining us for the seventh annual Walk to End the Silence.  Join event partners New Horizons Domestic Violence Services, Community Health Center, Inc., the Middletown Police Department, and more to take steps for awareness and support. While we usually walk together in person, this year we have again opted to move to a mostly-virtual event due to COVID-19.

This year we have designated a special Walk to End the Silence walking path for you to walk on your own or with close family and/or friends. Wear purple! The path is clearly marked with New Horizons and Walk to End the Silence signage.

Walking Path Information

We have a designated path in Middletown that begins and ends at 169 Cross Street near the Middletown Fire Department (Station 2) and includes Long Lane, Wadsworth Street, and Pine Street.

Can’t make it to Middletown? No problem! Support victims and survivors of intimate partner violence by registering and taking a walk on your favorite local walking path.
