The YWCA Metropolitan Chicago’s Sexual Violence Support Services (SVSS) team is so grateful for the work and support from our numerous community partners and community at large. Without this support, we would not be able to be fully do this work without them. During COVID-19, we know that individuals and families have been stuck at home, but still looking for ways to give back and stay active. We utilized this platform for our first virtual 5k and after great success, have decided to use it again this year to continue activating our community. This event gives flexibility in when and how people can complete the race and maintains social distancing to keep everyone safe!
In addition to registration, we are also collecting donations to support our work across all three of our vital departments inclusive of prevention, advocacy and counseling. Your valued support helps survivors get the help and resources they need. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions.
