Members of the Penn College community rallied earlier this month to walk and/or run 1 million “Yards for Yeardley,” a national effort to raise awareness about relationship violence. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 4, faculty/staff and students – bolstered by a phenomenal turnout from Athletics as part of their NCAA Division III celebration – paid tribute to Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia lacrosse player beaten to death in 2010 by her ex-boyfriend. The group traveled 1,019,553 yards, nearly 580 miles.
