Purple For A Purpose 5K

Saturday, Oct 12, 2019 at 8:00am

Veterans Memorial Park
4451 North Vantage Drive
Fayetteville, AR 72764

The 4th annual Purple for a Purpose 5K and Fun Run is a running event set for Saturday, October 12, 2019.  Its purpose is raising awareness around the issue of domestic violence here in our community. The chip-timed race will start at 8:00am at Veterans Memorial Park in Fayetteville with the Fun Run/Walk to follow at 8:05am. The race course will run along the Lake Fayetteville trail and is stroller accessible.

Not interested in running 3.1 miles? In addition to the 5K, this year’s event will include a 1 mile Fun Run/Walk, perfect for kids and those who prefer a slower pace.

Out of town on race day? Work nights? Or just enjoy sleeping in? We also have a Sleep In for a Purpose option!

We ask for your support because it is our hope for our community as a whole to band together and make the statement that we will not tolerate domestic violence and ongoing abuse. This event was designed to kick off October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month for the region with the goals of educating the public what domestic violence is and that it does not discriminate within any demographics. Just as the JLNWA empowers the women within our league, we want to empower the public and domestic violence survivors to take a stand.
