On the morning of August 5, 2021, the body of Michelle Avan was found in her home by her son brutally beaten to death.  What Trevon and Nyah Avan, would soon come to know is their mother died at the hands of an intimate partner.  The family of Michelle Avan will host the 1st Annual Michelle Movement Walk in Your Light 5K Walk/Run to honor her legacy and shine a light on Intimate Partner Homicide.
