About This Activity

Educate Advocate Against Domestic Violence

On Saturday, November 15, 2014, participants from all across the country will come together to advocate against domesticviolence.  This 5K Run/1 Mile Walk is very unique as each participant that walks the planned route, will have the opportunity to partner with an actual domestic violence survivor and hear their personal story for the mile they walk together! 

Emphasizing an issue that has and is continuing to sweep across American households and communities worldwide, this race will bring about education, awareness and healing to those that participate. 

Participants have the option to run or walk in honor or memory of someone, or share their own story of being a survivor.  In addition, there are opportunities to volunteer or cheer on participants.  We welcome all men, women, boys and girls to take part in this event!
