Don’t miss out on Early Bird pricing for WAAV’s 6th annual
Race to End Domestic Violence
After last year’s virtual race, The Wakefield Alliance Against Violence’s,
(WAAV) Racing to End Domestic Violence 5k run/walk around Lake
Quannapowitt is back. This professionally-timed race is on Saturday,
October 16th at 9:00 am. Early bird pricing is just $25 if you sign up by
Tuesday, August 31st. After that, the price increases to $35. The youth rate is $20 (for anyone 16 and under). People who register by September 25th are guaranteed a race shirt. Packet pickup is the day of the race at The Lakeside Inn, 595 North Ave., from 7:30-8:45 am. A $75 cash prize will be awarded to the top male and female finishers after the race at the Lakeside Inn. All pre-registered 16 and under youth runners will get a Cravings gift card for participating. This year, the race will be professionally timed and bibs will have a timing chip.
All proceeds raised will go towards WAAV’s efforts to combat violence in our community. WAAV coordinates educational programs for students in school and for members in the community. In addition, WAAV connects individuals and families to agencies that offer intervention and direct service to people who are experiencing violence. WAAV also uses proceeds from this race to provide Wakefield Police Department with gift cards, which are given to Domestic Violence survivors in emergency situations.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and we hope you can join us for a fun event to help us raise awareness.
