Take a step to end domestic violence at the 18th Annual Women In Distress SAFEWALK-RUN 5K on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) in Davie. Registration is now open for all walkers and runners, and their four-legged friends. Proceeds help support the free and confidential services provided to women, children and men at Women In Distress of Broward County, 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 WID 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 (on leash) at 9:00am.
A registration fee is required in order to participate. Adults (ages 18 and older) are $25, youth participants (ages 6-17) are $15 and dogs can walk for $10 (must be leashed with a registered adult or teen). Kids ages 5 and under are free. SAFEWALK participants will enjoy a complimentary breakfast and T-shirt.
Register now at womenindistress.org. Your registration fee will answer two calls for help on our 24-Hour Crisis Hotline.
