About This Fundraiser
I'll be running a 5K hosted by a nonprofit called KAFSC that offers both intervention and prevention programs for victims of domestic abuse in the Tri-State Area. I've been closely involved with this nonprofit for the past 4 years and have seen its direct impact on the lives of many children and women who go through our programs.
October is Domestic Violence awareness month and I'm running to make a statement that I will not stand for domestic abuse. But... I'm also running to raise funds for our services! All donations directly go into our prevention and intervention programs fund for our victims.
Would you please consider donating any amount to this cause?
Even $5 will go a long way!
Join us as we "Dash to End Domestic Violence!"
The Purple 5k Dash to End Domestic Violence is a 5k novelty race for novices as well as serious runners. Come in your finest purple!
All ages are welcome.
