Registration is now open for the 9th Annual Run for Empowerment which will be held on June 18, 2016 in Burlington, Vermont.
The Run for Empowerment features race distances for all runners including a 1 mile run, a 5K and a 10K option and takes runners alongside the waterfront section of Burlington.
There’s going to be great food, prizes, and free massages for participants! Runners will be running to help end domestic violence in your community.
Proceeds from the 9th Annual Run for Empowerment benefit Women Helping Battered Women. Formed in 1974, WHBW has evolved into the largest provider of domestic violence services in Vermont. In addition to providing emergency shelter and housing advocacy, WHBW offers 24-hour hotline services, legal advocacy, programs for children and many educational outreach programs. We believe that all people have the right to live without fear of abuse – sexual, physical, emotional, or financial.
