ABOUT CUMBEE CENTER

The Cumbee Center to Assist Abused Persons is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to support and empower domestic violence and sexual violence victims and their families by providing services, reducing the tolerance of abuse, and advocating for social change. We are a safe haven for those fleeing from abuse.  We offer confidential, comprehensive and highly specialized services 24-hours everyday that are completely free.

INTRO

Attracting runners from all over the CSRA and the state of SC, the Whiskey Road Race has been an Aiken tradition for over 40 years. The Whiskey Road Race is our annual fundraiser which allows us to continue our vital services to victims of domestic and sexual violence in the 6 counties we serve. The funds raised by this race allows us to continue operating our agency and providing hope and new beginnings to those who have suffered abuse.

In 2021, the Cumbee Center served 505 new victims of domestic violence and 78 new victims of sexual assault. We provided 122 victims, 3207 nights of safety at our emergency shelter and 25 families housing stability through financial assistance. We provided 8262 unique services to 865 individuals, including counseling. We created our footprint in North Augusta and received in kind donations from over 115 community members or partners. The work we are doing today is only possible because of your support. You make it possible for Cumbee Center to champion the life saving services we provide. Let’s run for THEIR lives. Together.

WHAT IS THE WHISKEY ROAD RACE?

This beautiful course is designed to challenge runners and walkers alike through the event options of a 10K or 5K, providing a fun and exciting atmosphere for all who attend.  The 5K and 10K are officially time with chip timing.  A digital clock will be displayed. Water will be provided on the course.
