Dating Violence Awareness

February is National Dating
Violence Awareness Month


  What is dating violence?  Dating violence (or relationship abuse) is a pattern of violent behavior that someone uses against a girlfriend or boyfriend.  It can occur in both casual dating situations and serious, long-term relationships, homosexual and heterosexual relationships.
  You may experience dating violence even if you are not being physically abused.  Dating violence/abuse can take many forms. Abuse isn’t just hitting.  It can include, but is not limited to:
   •yelling
  •threatening to harm or kill you, your family, your friends, or themselves.
  •name calling – loser, you were nothing before me.
  •obsessive phone calls, texting, or messaging - Wanting to know where you are every minute of the day.
  •extreme possessiveness- telling you he/she is your family now, you don’t need your family any more.
  Getting married will NOT stop the abuse, it only gets worse!  If you are experiencing dating violence, tell a trusted friend or family member, or call your local law enforcement office and ask to speak with the Victim Advocate.  GET HELP!

F3 the Valley Group


  Pictured is a  photo of everyone who attended The F3 the Valley 1-year anniversary- which took place-01/14/2019-
  We meet at the Saluda High School parking lot- Tuesdays and Thursdays 5 am -  and Saturdays at 6:30 am
  F3 is a national network of free, peer-led workouts for men. Our mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups for men for the invigoration of male community leadership.
  Started in 2011 in Charlotte, North Carolina, F3 has grown to more than 26 states and 1,400 scheduled workouts a week through the volunteer efforts of men whose lives have been changed by their involvement with the group.
  The three Fs in our name stand for Fitness, Fellowship and Faith — the last of which we define as not one specific religion or faith system, but simply a belief in something outside oneself.
  F3 participants range in age from the 4-, 5- and 6-year-olds who participate in F3 Dads workouts each summer to men in their 60s and 70s — and even one in his 80s!
  Our workouts …
  •Are free of charge
  •Are open to all men
  •Are held outdoors, rain or shine, heat or cold
  •Are led by men who participate in the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary
  •End with a Circle of Trust
  We welcome men of all fitness levels to our workouts and have no requirement for membership other than that you show up at the appointed time and place and follow what the workout leader (the “Q” in F3 lingo) does.
  The F3 Credo is: Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you find him.
