About This Activity

The Marshall County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (MCCADV) is proud to present the 16th Annual Laranda Nichols Memorial Run for Hope 5k.  Domestic violence is a serious problem affecting families in Marshall County.  The MCCADV assists victims and educates the public.  All race proceeds benefit abused spouses and their children.  Laranda Nichols was a charter member of the MCCADV and served as secretary for three years.  She was instrumental in helping the coalition lobby state legislatures for a grant to establish court advocacy and to open a shelter for victims in Marshall County.  Laranda died June 11, 2005 after a brief battle with cancer.  Laranda was passionate about the Coalition, especially about this race!
