5K Run/Walk to End Domestic Violence

The Women’s Center of Rhode Island’s 5K Run/Walk to End Domestic Violence will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2015 (rain or shine). The race will begin and end at Pierce Stadium which is located on Mercer Street in East Providence.

This annual fundraising event encourages our community to step out and support the Women’s Center by raising critical funds needed to continue their important work of helping individuals and families become domestic violence survivors.

Rain or shine, registration and check-in begins at 8:00am, followed by a .25 mile Youth Race at 8:15am. The 5K start will be at 9:00am. This will be a professionally timed event with prizes awarded by age category. Entertainment, refreshments, and activities will continue throughout the morning with prizes awarded during the closing program at 11:00am.

All proceeds will benefit the Women’s Center of Rhode Island.

Every step taken and every donation made will help the Women’s Center make great strides in helping others!
