The beautiful thing about community is when people can come together from the bottom places of their stories, when they decide to rise up beyond the fear, beyond the shame and beyond the tough miles. Making it together to their finish line, their voice, their truth and their freedom. The strength was in them all along, they just had to see it was possible.
Breaking the Silence to Sexual Abuse 5K & 10K is an opportunity for our community to join together as survivors & supporters to unite against a crime occurring to 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys by the time they reach 18 years of age. It is one of the most prevalent health problems facing children. Through awareness we can protect them and give survivors freedom from their silence and shame.
This, like any race, goes beyond the actual running. It's overcoming our bodies, our minds and the silence...together.
We invite you to be a part of the impact.
