About One Love and Yards for Yeardley

 One Love was founded in 2010 in memory of Yeardley Love. Yeardley was a senior at the Univeristy of Virginia when she was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend.


In 2012, Yeardley’s mother Sharon Love decided to bring awareness to Relationship Violence the same way MADD brought attention to drinking and driving. She knew that by educating everyone to recognize the signs of unhealthy relationships and empowering bystanders to take action real change could take place.

The One Love foundation was established to work across the country to raise awareness of abuse and how to prevent it.

The #Yards4Yeardley event empowers communities to walk, run and ride to raise awareness for One Love and the movement to end abuse.

Yards of Yeardley at SUNY Oneonta

In the fall of 2016 the SUNYAC (Athletic Conference) challenged all of its member schools to host a Yards for Yeardley event with a goal of 10 millions yards walked (or run, danced, hopped, skipped, etc) to raise awareness about the issue of relatonship violence.

 

We hope that as many members of the college community as possible will join us at Red Dragon Field between the hours of 9am and 5pm.

 

We are kicking off a few days early and encouraging members of the campus community to dedicate their walking to our collective total of 10 million yards.
