After five years of memorializing slain Washington Township mother, Tara Grant at , the annual domestic violence walk and run will be moved to Mount Clemens.
Tara Grant, 34, was killed and dismembered by her husband, Stephen Grant in 2007. In an effort to cover-up the murder, Stephen Grant hid his wife's dismembered torso at their home and scattered some of her body parts at Stony Creek, which was just two miles from their home.
Stephen Grant was convicted of second-degree murder, and is serving a 50-80 year sentence in prison for Tara Grant’s death.
That same year, Turning Point, a domestic violence shelter, in conjuction with Tara Grant's family, started the Tara Grant Memorial Walk & Run, as a way for Tara’s family to share her legacy with others by promoting domestic violence awareness and prevention.
Check out from last year's run at Stony Creek.
This year, the event will be held on Sept. 29 in downtown Mount Clemens as a way to draw more participants, according to Tom Martin, a Turning Point Spokesman.
The start and finish point will be at 1 Crocker Boulevard, Mt. Clemens. The Race Day Event Timeline is as follows:
