Katie M. Socci was tragically taken from us as a result of Domestic Violence on June 15, 2011. She was 29 years old. 

Katie was a truly caring and compassionate individual. She was beautiful, loving, caring, magnetic, and amazingly FUNNY. She always put others needs before hers, no matter the circumstance. She was a Mother, a Daughter, a Sister, an Aunt, a Nurse, and the Best Friend a person could have. She was truly, One of a Kind. And for this, she will never be forgotten. We will all continue to carry on her beautiful spirit, and her legacy.

Our vision is to help others in our community that are, or may be affected by Domestic Violence. Our dream would be to empower victims of Domestic Violence to come forth and stand tall knowing that the community is behind them in their fight against Domestic Violence. We hope and pray that our efforts, and Katie’s legacy, could potentially save another’s life.

Our mission is to host events that would financially support the Domestic Violence Organizations that are deep rooted in our community. These organizations provide advocacy, counselling, safety, guidance, and support for these victims.

We value and believe in positive thinking and optimism. We value Katie’s beliefs’ and the beliefs’ of her family.  We value Katie’s beautiful spirit, and believe in keeping in burning bright.

To provide financial support to our local Domestic Violence shelters, we have put together the fun and crazy, “Socci Stiletto Stampede”.  The Stampede consists of a very colourful, highly entertaining 50 yard co-ed Stiletto Dash, a traditional 5K, live music, and raffles/silent auctions.

Please consider attending Katie’s run, or making a donation in Katie’s honor.

Please help us stomp out Domestic Violence, one stiletto at a time!! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
