SAND and ContactLifeline are proud to bring a Sexual Assault Awareness Month event to the Town of Bethany Beach for the first time. On average, someone is sexually assaulted every two minutes in the United States. Sexual assault can be uncomfortable to talk about, which is why the 2012 theme for Sexual Assault Awareness month is “It’s Time… To Talk About It!”. The SAND Wipeout is an opportunity to encourage the Delaware community to “wipeout” sexual assault in all its forms, and to take a stand and “Talk About It!”. This event is free and open to the public and is family friendly.
