Lisa Freeman the CEO of Abuse Bites and The Healing Projects Specialist for the Bully Police USA Running To Stop Abuse & Bullying "As a child I was both bullied and the bully. All I wanted was love, all I found was abuse. I didn't fit anywhere, so I made poor choices, gave into peer pressure, and went along with the crowd. All my life I ran to all the wrong things trying to find where I belonged. At 13, I ran away and lived out on the road with an older boyfriend who swore to love and protect me. For two years we hitchhiked all over the USA. I was kidnapped, raped, beaten and nearly killed more times than I can count. What was even worse is that my own boyfriend began abusing me too. Relationship violence and peer pressure are huge and need to be stopped. Today I'm running to share my story so other victims can break the cycle of abuse from their lives and be set free too."

Meet Snickers: Lisa says, "I didn't want a dog. I had a brand new house, 4 kids, and husband. My number #1 rule was NO PETS. But he ran under my van one day in the middle of winter. Luckily I stopped just in time. My daughter begged me to keep him. I said he could stay one night."
