On Sunday, October 6th, 2013 Womancare will be hosting the 17th Annual Race to End Domestic Abuse, at the Guilford Athletic Field on Route 15 in Guilford. This marks the first time that the 5K race/walk will begin at this location. A Community Cookout featuring hamburgers and hotdogs and drinks for purchase during and after the walk, as well as a farmer’s market and vendor area will provide refreshment and opportunity to meet local artisans. 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 11:30am and registration for the walk begins at noon, with the race beginning at 12:30pm and the walkers following at 1pm. Medals will be awarded to runners finishing 1st and 2nd place male and female overall in eight age divisions. There is a $20 registration fee for the run and the walk, which will earn a t-shirt while supplies last, and all participants are encouraged to gather pledges. Anyone who brings more than $100 in pledges will receive a special prize.

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 6. For more information, registration forms, or pledge sheets, visit our website at or call (207) 564-8165.
