RESOLVE Scarecrow 5K and Family Fun Run

“The least safe place for a woman in the State of NY is in her own home.”

For 15 years, the Scarecrow-Domestic Violence Stinks! 5k has been raising awareness and funds to prevent domestic violence and celebrate the courageous survivors.

We believe that everyone deserves to feel safe in their home and that by working together — as women, men, friends, family, neighbors, and community – that we can bring an end to domestic violence. Every dollar raised at this event supports this life changing work.
