Purple for a Purpose 5k & Fun Run

2022

The 7th Annual Purple for a Purpose 5K Run, 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk & Jog with Your Dog will be held on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at Lake Atalanta Park in Rogers. The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence here in our community. We ask for your support as 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 year we have added another category to the event, “Jog with your Dog”. This portion of the event will start at the “tail” end, following the 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk. We encourage you to bring your furry, faithful friend to enjoy a beautiful walk around Lake Atalanta with the one person they love unconditionally, and would die for, YOU. Up to 83% of women entering domestic violence shelters have at one time witnessed their abusers critically injuring or killing the family pet. The event is held in October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month with the goal to educate the public on what domestic violence is and that it does not discriminate within any demographic. Just as the Junior League of Northwest Arkansas empowers the women within our league, we want to empower the public and domestic violence victims to take a stand.

Not interested in running 3.1 miles? In addition to the 5K, this year’s event will include a 1-mile Fun Run/Walk, perfect for kids and those who prefer a slower pace.

Out of town on race day? Work nights? Or just enjoy sleeping in? We also have a Sleep-In for a Purpose option!

We ask for your support as it is our hope for our community as a whole to band together and make the statement that we will not tolerate domestic violence and ongoing abuse. This event is held in October during Domestic Violence Awareness Month with the goals of educating the community what domestic violence is and that it does not discriminate within any demographics. Just as the JLNWA empowers the women within our league, we want to empower the public and domestic violence survivors to take a stand.
