Jan Steves speaks at the 11th annual Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County luncheon at Xfinity Arena in Everett on Wednesday. Steves, an Edmonds native, spoke to those gathered about the challenges of completing the brutally cold Iditarod sled dog race in Alaska, of losing her 31-year-old son to a heart attack and of rebuilding her home after it was destroyed in an Alaska wildfire. “Victims of domestic violence need to know they are capable of more than they can imagine,” Steves said.
