About This Fundraiser
We're running this 5K to raise awareness and critically needed funds to help provide a safe, comfortable emergency shelter for women and children seeking safe haven.
KAFSC's Rainbow House is one of the few culturally competent shelters capable of serving Korean/Asian victims of violence with sensitivity and fully comprehensive services. From Asian food, Asian faces and a familiar neighborhood, and familiar language - Rainbow House is truly like a "chinjung" ("Home where mother is") for those we serve.

In commemoration of October being Domestic Violence (DV) Awareness Month, the Korean American Family Service Center (KAFSC) is hosting an exciting family-friendly event – Purple 5K Dash to End Domestic Violence. This 5K run/walk campaign draws awareness to domestic violence and brings families, friends and the community together in an interactive way to raise funds for our Rainbow House Shelter.
The Rainbow House Shelter is one of it’s kind and provides emergency housing as well as social services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault for women and children in a culturally and linguistically appropriate setting.
