The month of October is National Domestic Violence and Awareness Month and to show support, one local organization is hosting multiple events to raise awareness.
Watch as Jennifer Heiges with Junior League of Northwest Arkansas joins Good Day NWA with details on how you can help the league with their mission. The Junior League of Northwest Arkansas is an organization of women who promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women & improving communities.
On Saturday, October 12, the league will host their annual Purple for a Purpose 5k run from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park
