2015 Race Against Violence

Welcome to the 27th Annual Race Against Violence

presented by Verizon Wireless on March 7, 2015!


The Race Against Violence includes a Competitive 5K Run, Walk and Kids Fun Run with a post event family festival on the AIG Campus at Whole Foods Market Montrose.


Since 1977, the Women’s Center has provided shelter and support services for survivors of domestic and sexual Violence as well as prevention education to the community at large. The Race Against Violence serves as one of the agency’s major community outreach efforts and fundraising events, enabling the continuation of a spectrum of services offered free of charge to survivors.


Registration begins on September 15, 2014 and will close on March 2, 2015. Packet pickup will be located at Luke’s Locker, 1953 West Gray, 77019 on Thursday, March 5 and Friday, March 6 from 10-6 p.m.


Basic timed and non-timed 5K entry fees for adults are $25 or $35 at the special Silver Star level, which includes a commemorative runner visor and charitable donation to help support survivors in our community. Students may register for $20 and Kids Fun Run participants for $15.  There is also a “stay in bed” registration option at $25 for participants who want to support the event or fundraise without attending on race day. All registered participants will receive a race t-shirt.

“When I called the hotline I was told, ‘You don't have to live like this.’
And for the first time, it felt like someone threw me a lifeline.”  Survivor
