Spring into HOPE and help kick off the 3rd Annual Journey to Heal Ministries 5K & 1.5 Mile Hope Run in support of survivors of sexual abuse during Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month (#SAAM).
According to RAINN (Rape and Incest National Network) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control), every 73 seconds someone in America has been sexually assaulted and every 9 minutes that someone is a child. What is more, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of sexual violence in their lifetime.
This is a virtual and local event! Whether you participate virtually or locally along the scenic trail at Long Leaf Park, you are helping to raise awareness and support for survivors and their families!
