On Sunday, October 5th, 2014, Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance will host the 18th Annual Race to End Domestic Abuse, at the Guilford Athletic Field on Route 15 in Guilford. This year’s race will feature a new, improved 5K route. A Community Cookout featuring hamburgers and hotdogs, french fries and drinks for purchase during and after the walk will provide the opportunity for refreshment. Music will be provided by “The Music Maker,” Steve Pratt, so gather your friends, family and co-workers and mark your calendars for an event you won’t want to miss!
Registration for the 5K begins at 12:00 noon, and the race and walk will begin at 1:00 pm. Medals will be awarded to runners finishing 1st and 2nd place male and female overall in the three age divisions, and the 1st and 2nd place male and female finishers overall will receive a gift certificate for a pair of Salomon trail running shoes.
There is a $20 registration fee for runners, and walkers bringing in $20 or more in pledges will earn a t-shirt. All participants are encouraged to gather pledges. Anyone bringing in more than $100 in pledges will receive a special prize and the team which gathers the greatest amount of pledges will be acknowledged at the event and featured in media accounts following the event.
This is an event that will give your organization the chance to make a statement about your intolerance for abuse. You can form a team and encourage your team members to wear identifying shirts with your organization’s logo, or your team can walk behind its own banner so the community will know that you are working to end abuse. This is one way we can all help those who are affected by domestic violence. Please join with us in the Race to End Abuse on Oct 5.
