Internationally acclaimed DJ, Missy Jay, announced that she will be participating in the 5K Santa Run to support Woman’s Trust, a charitable organization that benefits women affected by domestic violence.
“I’m working out in preparation and I’ll be posting my challenges on social media,” said Missy Jay.
The event is London’s biggest Santa Run in which participants dress as the festive icon of the holiday season. This year’s run will take place at Victoria Park on December 4th at 11AM. The DJ is raising funds to cover the cost of hiring a safe space for a set of 10 support group sessions. Event organizers provide a free Santa outfit to each participant. The registration fee is £25 and individuals who want to participate can register online.
Missy Jay speaks from a position of authority and has a special empathy with abuse victims. Now a strong, confident and successful woman, at one time she was trapped in a cycle of abusive relationships. “I devalued myself, choosing partners that were highly critical of me and who tried to dominate me,” said Missy Jay. “I didn’t know what a healthy love relationship was – for me it was suffering, trying to accommodate the other person and justifying the relationship. Seeing my colleagues moving forward in their dreams and aspirations gave me the courage to break the cycle.” “The signs of domestic abuse aren’t always visible and every girl should know the red flags of abuse from an early age”.
Missy Jay is competing in the Santa Run after a successful summer in Ibiza, Spain where she played at the Pacha Hotel and for DJ Mag in London. It’s rumored that her collaboration with Pacha will extend to another level. Her next track, “Upside Down,” will be released on December 20th on her own label, MJM-Records. Missy Jay will soon begin her Asian tour, with a full list of dates and venues to be released by the end of November this year.
