The Bethany House of Northern Virginia is hosting their 2nd annual Walk/Run Against Domestic Violence on October 2 in Springfield.
The course is two miles, and runs along Robert E. Lee High School.
The run will begin at 8 a.m. at 6540 Franconia Road. Individuals can take part in the race or a team relay race which acts as a simulation for participants to gain insight into what some domestic violence survivors face in that moment once they have made that brave decision to leave the abusive situation.
Proceeds for the run will support the shelters at Bethany House so more survivors will have a safe place to reestablish their lives free of abuse.
This race will not be chip timed – registration and t-shirt pickup starting at 8 a.m. Children 10 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult.
