    21st Annual Courage Walk
    April 12, 2014
    10:00 Continental Breakfast 
    11:00 Courage Walk (1 mile) begins 
    Jefferson County Courthouse, 
    100 Jefferson County Pkwy. Golden

    The Courage Walk registration begins on the steps of the Jefferson County Courthouse with a continental breakfast at 10:00. The easy one-mile walk starts at 11:00 and concludes at the Courage Garden behind the courthouse. The Courage Garden was created as a respite for victims and their families during their trips to the courthouse during the criminal justice process.  The walk is approximately one mile long and is wheelchair accessible.  Dogs on leashes are welcome.

    The event is sponsored by victim advocates throughout Jefferson County. A $10 registration is suggested but not required.  If you would like to help victims in our community, please send donations to Victim Outreach Information (VOI), P.O. Box 5173, Golden, CO 80401.  VOI is a non-profit that provides advocacy services to crime victims.

    Each spring, victim advocates from the First Judicial District gather for the annual Courage Walk, which coincides with National Crime Victims' Rights Week.  National Crime Victims' Rights Week recognizes the devastating impact crime has on victims and communities. The Courage Walk is a time to honor the strength and courage of the survivors we have come to know in the aftermath of crime. It is also a time to speak in unison for victims' rights and services, today and in the future.  Read "Walking in Remembrance," an essay by the family of a Jefferson County murder victim.

    The walk is approximately one mile long and is wheelchair accessible. Dogs on leashes are welcome. If you have questions, please call 303-271-5339.

    If you would like to become a volunteer victim advocate, please contact Susan Sylvester, Sheriff's Office Victim Services Advocate, at 720-497-7249.
