Refuse To Abuse® 5K – VIRTUAL
- This event has passed.
The Refuse To Abuse® 5K is an annual 5K fun run/walk at T-Mobile Park. For the health and safety of all involved, this event will be VIRTUAL this year. Participants will walk, jog, 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) on July 11, 2020. When you’re done, you can get your race swag (finishers’ medal and Bluetooth speaker) either by picking it up at the ballpark on July 11 (we’ll have a safe, socially distant method for handing it out) or we will mail it to you. We’ll be interacting across social media channels throughout race day to make the experience fun and interactive!
This event has always been a time to celebrate the resilience of survivors and the power of community. At a time when so many survivors are experiencing isolation, we hope this virtual event will provide some much needed connection, communicate to everyone experiencing abuse that you are not alone, and we will back in-person again next year.
Funds raised benefit our statewide violence prevention and education work.
