Purple Runway is an annual fashion extravaganza designed to raise awareness and funding to help support those who have endured domestic and intimate partner violence and are determined to overcome the resulting trauma, depression and emotional distress.

This year, we're expanding the scope of our mission to make the shift from awareness and empowerment to include education and connection through our iTHRIVE Sisterhood community, which launched during Women's History Month in March 2018. 

Throughout history, women have gathered in circles to heal, share, laugh, and grow. We believe that providing workshops around mindset, healthy relationships, and confidence will lend itself to preventive solutions while, at the same time, helping survivors transition more quickly than with conventional therapy on its own. 

Together we can stand in the gap for those still in the struggle to empower these women and create a bridge of financial, emotional, and therapeutic support.

in honor of our partnership, we will be attending, promoting and speaking at this event! We are so proud of our sisters.
