“We host this 5K during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in support of prevention, education and counseling, and in celebration of the healing of those who have survived sexual violence in our community,” said Anna Chowdhury, executive director of the Sexual Assault Resource Center. SARC is a nonprofit organization that provides a 24-hour hotline and accompaniment (i.e. to hospital) for survivors; free and confidential counseling for survivors and family of sexual assault survivors; prevention education presentations and trainings; community awareness campaigns (i.e. Watch Your Drink); and accompaniment to court or law enforcement agencies.
Early Registration for the Teal Ribbon Run 5K is available before April 8, 2013 - $20 for adults; $10 for children; $15 each for groups of 10 or more; or $50 for a family pack (2 adults + 2 children). There is also a “Sleep in for SARC” option of a $20 donation without attending the run. After April 8, prices increase and t-shirts are no longer guaranteed.
