THE DETAILS: On Sunday, April 26th at Thomas College in Waterville at 9:00 am, we anticipate over 600 people running or walking in solidarity against the harsh reality of the impact of sexual violence in our Maine communities. Inspired by the current Maine statistic of an estimated ONE in FIVE people in Maine have been affected by sexual violence (Muskie School of Public Policy, Maine Crime Victimizations Rates, 2011), the Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center is hosting the 8th annual One in Five 5k race.
~This event is taking place in the month of April to honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month~
Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome!
Strollers are welcome!
Packet Pick Up: Packets can be picked up at our Winthrop office on Friday, April 24 between the hours of 8:00 and 4:30 or in the gym at Thomas College on Saturday, April 25th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.
Sunday (race day): registration: 7:30 to 8:30 AM race starts: 9:00 AM
100% of the proceeds of this event will benefit the Sexual Assault Crisis & Support Center and their services for survivors of sexual abuse. A fully staffed and highly trained Sexual Assault Support-line available 24 hours a day, Support groups, justice system advocacy, school based prevention education, and Children’s Advocacy Center are all provided free of charge to the members of the Kennebec and Somerset counties’ communities in need.
