“We are very thankful to have been chosen as a charity partner for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. The partnership will allow Golden House to move forward with plans to meet the longer-term shelter needs of victims of domestic violence and their children,” said Karen Faulkner, executive director of Golden House. “This is an excellent opportunity to support victims on their path to becoming survivors and for our community to come together and say ‘no more’ to domestic violence.”
