About This Activity


On Sunday, April 24th at Thomas College in Waterville at 9:00 am, we anticipate over 600 people  running or walking in solidarity against the harsh reality of the impact of sexual violence in our Maine communities.   Inspired by the current Maine statistic of an estimated ONE in FIVE people in Maine have been affected by sexual violence (Muskie School of Public Policy, Maine Crime Victimizations Rates, 2011), the Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center is hosting the 5th annual One in Five 5k race.  This event is taking place in the month of April to honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month.


There will be an early check in day on Saturday, April 23th at Thomas College from 2pm - 4pm

Day of event, Check in and Day of Registration is from 7:30AM to 8:30AM


100% of the proceeds of this event will benefit the Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center and their services for survivors of sexual abuse.  A fully staffed and highly trained Sexual Assault Support-line available 24hours a day,  Support groups, justice system advocacy, school based prevention education, and Children’s Advocacy Center are all provided free of charge to the members of the Kennebec and Somerset counties’ communities in need.  Hundreds of people utilize these important services every year.
