Proceeds from Race4Love will benefit CODA and local survivors of domestic abuse. Since 1986, CODA has been helping survivors of domestic abuse break the cycle and build new lives for themselves and their families. Over the years, CODA has grown from a hotline and emergency shelter to offer a continuum of free services available in shelter and in the community including counseling, case management, legal services, transitional housing and community education. CODA relies on grants and donations to provide all of these critical services free of charge.
