LITTLE FALLS -- Men in central Minnesota will mark October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month by staying up 24 hours in front of Coborn's Superstore in Little Falls from 7 am. Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday.
The annual "Up All Night" campaign educates men on what they can do to help end domestic violence and to demonstrate that violence against women is not acceptable. It is sponsored by Hands of Hope Research Center, in partnership with Coborn's Superstore, St. Gabriel's Hospital and Little Falls Radio.
Men will be asked to sign a pledge to rise up against domestic violence and will educate other men about the effects of domestic violence and what men can do to help end it.
Men are encouraged to stop and make a pledge to rise up against domestic violence. To participate or for more information, call Charles Hempeck at (320) 632-1657.
