summit daily news

SUMMIT COUNTY – Since April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, St. Anthony Summit Medical Center wants locals to join in with its Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) team for the second annual SANE Walk set for Tuesday. Scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., participants will walk from the Breckenridge Transit Center in the Gondola parking lot (between Main Street and North Park Avenue) to the Lucha Colorado Cantina at 550 South Main Street in the La Cima Mall. The event’s aim is to bring attention to and prevent sexual assault.

The SANE program works with Advocates for Victims of Assault and local law enforcement to address the needs of Summit County and surrounding areas in consistent, quality evidence collection and credible, neutral courtroom testimony. The SANE program also provides community services to help increase victim reporting rates and the prosecution rates of perpetrators.

To register for the SANE Walk, contact the Summit Medical Center Health Foundation at (970) 668-9755 or e-mail lindalichtendahl

@centura.org. A $20 registration donation will support the Summit Medical Center SANE team for their training and equipment needs. Onsite registration starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Breckenridge Transit Center.
