Leigh’s Legacy Foundation focuses on preventing teen dating violence through education, advocacy and outreach.
Leigh’s Legacy Foundation was started in partnership by the family of Leigh LaCour Belyn and Strategies Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) upon her tragic death at the hands of an ex-boyfriend in August 2011. Leigh was just 18 years old.
Why We are Chamber Members:
What happened to my daughter happened to me, my son, our wonderful extended family, but also our community. I want people to know that teen dating violence is out there and it can happen to others. I want mothers to talk to their sons and daughters about this. I want schools to point out dangers to students, and I want coaches to discuss healthy dating relationships with their players. I’m a member of the Columbus Chamber to share Leigh’s story.
Facts about My Company
Abuse isn’t always physical. Other types include name-calling, belittling accomplishments and even using technology. Since devices like cell phones make us all accessible at times, abuse can come in the form of constant contact, like incessant texting or phone calls.
