Shine Your Light 5K + Vigil @ RiverScape MetroPark

Artemis Center and YWCA Dayton will, for the fourth year, host a collaborative friend and fundraiser to promote awareness of domestic violence and raise funds to support domestic violence victims. It is held in conjunction with the University of Dayton School of Law Human Rights Awareness and Advocacy Committee and the University of Dayton Women’s Center.

Activities include a community vigil to honor those lost to domestic violence and celebrate survivors, followed by an evening 5K run/walk/stroll (participants are encouraged to wear purple and bring accessories that glow or light up). Various activity vendors and informational tables will also be on hand, and we’ll have multiple raffle baskets to bid on! All proceeds support Artemis Center and YWCA Dayton’s programs and services that support domestic violence victims.

The 5K, chip timed by Key Sports, features an easy out-and-back course perfect for experienced runners, hobby joggers, students, walkers and families alike. No animals allowed; strollers are welcome. Purple and glow gear encouraged.

Need help? It starts with a call.

If you are in immediate need of assistance, call 911.
