About This Fundraiser
Every person on earth should experience a life of dignity and respect. However, 41-61% of Asian women report experiencing physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner during their lifetime.
The women who come to KAFSC are tremendous fighters and survivors who need a community of support to continue their journey.
That's why I'm getting my sneakers back on to raise funds to bring HOPE and HEALING to women and children who have experienced things that no person should.
Domestic violence and sexual assault are two prevalent issues in the Korean community and every person that supports by speaking out and sponsoring fundraisers like these really does help make a difference.
Your support means so much! Thank you for giving!
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.
