Women In Distress Invites Community To Take A Step To End Domestic Violence
17th Annual Safewalk-Run 5k To Be Held Saturday, February 27, 2016 At NSU In Davie
Women In Distress of Broward County, Inc. is hosting its 17th Annual SAFEWALK-RUN 5K on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) in Davie. Registration is now open for all walkers and runners, and their four-legged friends. Proceeds benefit Women In Distress of Broward County, Inc., the only nationally accredited, state-certified, full service domestic violence center serving Broward County.
More than 1,000 community members (and their furry friends) will take to the pavement to raise awareness about domestic violence and help Women In Distress reach its goal of raising $150,000, which can provide 1,500 nights of safe shelter for adults and children affected by domestic violence. Registration begins at 7:30 am. The event will kick off with a warm up, followed by timed race for runners and a more leisurely stroll for walkers, strollers and dogs at 9:00am.
Come out and walk or run in honor of those affected by domestic violence. Domestic violence survivors will be cheering on walkers and runners along the route and also walking alongside supporters celebrating the brave steps theyâ€™ve taken toward a new violence-free life. February is also Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month and information on domestic violence will be available for all participants.
A registration fee is required in order to participate. Pre-registered adults are $25, students are $20, youth participants, ages 6-12 are $15 and dogs can walk for $10 (must be registered with a participating adult or teen). Kids ages 5 and under are free. SAFEWALK participants will enjoy a complimentary breakfast and T-shirt. Kids can enjoy a variety of fun activities and everyone can visit local vendors within our vendor village.
