The 3rd annual Purple for a Purpose 5K & Fun Run is a running event set for Saturday, October 7, 2017 at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale. Its purpose is raising awareness around the issue of domestic violence here in our community. The chip-timed race will start at 8:00am with the Fun Run to follow at 8:05am. In addition to the 5K, this year’s event will include a 1K Kids Character Run for children 12-&-under and accompanying family members, starting at 9:00am.
We ask for your support because it is our hope for our community to band together and make the statement that we will not tolerate domestic violence and ongoing abuse. This event was designed to kick off October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month for the region with the goals of educating the public what domestic violence is. Just as the JLNWA empowers the women within our League, we want to empower the public and domestic violence victims to take a stand.
Help us make strides against domestic violence by dressing up in purple to raise awareness and running 3.1 miles to symbolize conquering the struggle.
Race registration is coming soon! Stay tuned for more detailed information and to register for the 5K, Fun Run, 1K Kids Character Run, or the Sleep In!
