Next week, the One Love Foundation will host its very first Team One Love Week in Baltimore. Anchored by the Baltimore Running Festival and with the help of dedicated volunteers, One Love will host a series of events the week before the festival to re-engage past supporters and activate new community members to join the movement to end relationship abuse. The week will feature something for everyone.

The One Love Foundation was founded in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a native Baltimorean who was killed by her former boyfriend. One Love works with students to education, empower and activate campus communities in a movement to end relationship violence.
