TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — Saturday dozens of runners hit the pavement in Tupelo for the annual "Silence Hides Violence run/walk".

This is the 3rd Year for the event which was started by former Tupelo High School student Kaitlyn Kincade and is held in correlation with Teen Dating Violence awareness month.

Kincade, says it’s important to continue to have events like today’s race to help shed light on an important issue facing today’s teens…

"I started this to raise awareness for victims of dating violence and domestic violence, because I've been through it and I know a lot of other people who have been through it- I just think it's important for people to speak up and protect themselves," said Kincade.

After completing the race, runners received a goodie bag which includes information that can help spot the signs of teen dating violence.
