Make it clever… draw it cool! Healthy relationships are your muse and chalk is your tool… spread the word…and get ready to take a run at ChalkHeART. chalk HeART 2015

Here’s how it works: Any high school, junior high school or community youth group can enter up to two teams to participate.

The theme of ChalkHeART is “Roar” by Katie Perry. Pick your favorite lyrics from the song and creatively illustrate them, on the ground live, at the Bank of Marin, Friday, April 24 between 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

Healthy relationships consist of trust, honesty, respect, equality, and compromise. Unfortunately, teen dating violence—the type of intimate partner violence that occurs between two young people who are, or who were once in, an intimate relationship—is a serious problem in the United States. A national survey found that ten percent of teens, female and male, had been the victims of physical dating violence within the past year and approximately 29 percent of adolescents reported being verbally or psychologically abused within the previous year.

 If you feel like your relationship is not healthy, contact Petaluma People Services Center 707-765-8488 a clinician can speak with you.
