Virtual Race Away From Domestic Violence 2020
August 8 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Join us from wherever you are for the 17th annual Race Away From Domestic Violence, a 5K (3.1 mile) event to benefit the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
Keeping the health and welfare of our participants in mind, we have decided that our 2020 RAFDV 5K will be a VIRTUAL event. Walk, roll or run a 5K (3.1 miles) on your own, wherever it is safe to do so (e.g., in your neighborhood, on a treadmill). We’ll be interacting across social media channels throughout race day and host an online Opening Ceremonies to make the experience fun and interactive. All participants will be sent a packet including a t-shirt and official certificate of participation.
ICADV relies on donations from supporters like you to continue our work. are relying on these funds now more than ever to meet the emerging needs of survivors in the wake of a global pandemic. With the money raised from this event, we will be able to provide them assistance with rent, utility assistance, food, and the stable basics they need to feel safe. Learn how to create your fundraising page with our easy, step-by-step instructions here.
At a time when so many survivors (and our communities as a whole) are experiencing isolation, we hope this virtual event will provide some much-needed connection, and communicate to everyone experiencing abuse that they are not alone. We invite you to share photos or a video of you and/or your team members walking/running the race using #RAFDV2020. We will feature all of the pictures/videos on our website and social media channels.
