About This Fundraiser
Representing the Best Coast and/or UWS....
(Upper) West Siders / West (Coast) Siders are running to end DV!
As a part of the KAFSC family, I (KATE!) am constantly inspired and moved by women who are SURVIVORS of domestic violence, sexual assault, and trafficking.
That's why we want to get up from our desks and hit the pavement for KAFSC's first 5K Race to End DV which will help fund and support KAFSC's many programs and services!
Thank you for your support!
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.
