SueB 5K 10K

Sun October 2, 2022



The SueB 5K 10K honors the memory of  Susan “SueB” Newby and promotes healthy relationships while raising important funds to sustain free services at the WCA. The 13th Annual SueB 5k 10k will be IN-PERSON and the event will kick off on October 2, 2022, at Julia Davis Park.

This event honors the life of Susan “SueB” Newby, whom most believe was the victim of a domestic abuse homicide in 2008. This annual event, first started by Sue’s friends and family, provides an opportunity to raise awareness about domestic abuse while celebrating healthy relationships. 

Although we are entering a stage of new normal the honest truth is that domestic violence does not end when a pandemic does. We found that in July of 2021 we had the highest number of calls into our domestic violence hotline ever. Home is still not safe for all but we have the chance to raise awareness that there is hope and kindness in our community.

100% of sponsor donations and participant fees support our Endowment Fund to ensure the WCA can maintain our services and serve our clients for many years to come.

In the heartfelt words of Sue’s sister Marj Sente: "Don’t wait until your sister, daughter or mother is a victim of domestic abuse or sexual assault, step forward now and make an investment in the WCA to raise awareness about domestic violence."  

This is a great opportunity to get your family, friends and coworkers together to celebrate positive relationships. Will you join us?
