Reminder: Race a Police Officer for a Good Cause
The number of rapes and sexual assaults in our community are continually growing and volunteer and financial resources are strained to combat the problem. The Rape Crisis Volunteers of Cumberland County (RCVCC) is fortunate to have positive working relationships with our local Law Enforcement Agencies, including the Fayetteville State University (FSU) Police Department. Our FSU officers are integral to the good work of our organization, and they have generously volunteered their time (and pride) to race you at the Putt-Putt in Hope Mills.
Why You? Haven’t you ever wanted to race a police officer? Come and live out your fantasy in a Go-Kart with a Uniformed Officer! With your support, RCVCC will help to provide essential services for victims of rape and sexual assault. All supporters of RCVCC can help the cause on August 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. Cost varies by activity. Twenty percent of proceeds of the wrist-banded clientele will come directly to support RCVCC. Be sure to mention at the door that you are there to support the rape crisis center.
Why Now? In Fiscal Year 2010-2011 alone, RCVCC provided services to 476 victims, including 75 trips to the hospital to provide advocacy to victims undergoing an evidence collection kit. Officers of the Special Victims Unit of Fayetteville Police Department, who will also be on hand to race you, collaborate on a daily basis with RCVCC to assist victims and ensure they are provided with as much support as needed to get through the criminal justice process.
FSU is the second-oldest public institution in North Carolina. A member of the University of North Carolina System, FSU has nearly 6,000 students and offers degrees in more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
