THE RACE


Spring into hope for the 5th Annual Journey to Heal Ministries 5K & 1.5Mile Hope Run on April 23, 2023 in support of survivors of sexual abuse, during the month of #SAAM (Sexual Assault Awareness Month)!

According to RAINN (Rape and Incest National Network) and the CDC, every 68 seconds someone in America has been sexually assaulted and every 9 minutes that someone is a child. If nothing changes 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. 

You can help raise awareness and support survivors of sexual abuse as you walk or run Long Leaf Park on April 23rd, or virtually in your own community anytime between April 1 - April 23!
