A Richmond, Virginia woman is planning a jump rope event to raise awareness about violence this summer.

According to the Richmond Standard, in July, Roshonda Walker wants to use double dutch to help locals to understand how violence impacts their community, 

“It has been an idea on my heart and now it’s time to follow through with it,” said Walker, who said she lives right off of Cutting Boulevard. “I will be doing this event on my own unless I get sponsors, which are welcomed.”

She hopes that his event will inspire people to pay attention to an epidemic that is hurting those who live in surrounding areas.

“I want to get our kids back to being active as well as raise awareness to the violence of our community,” Walker said. “I also want to show these youngsters that old school can beat that new school.. Lol.”

Keep up the good work!
