Refuse To Abuse 5k® 2020

Date: Saturday, July 11, 2020

Time: 9:00 am

Event Description: With the switch to a VIRTUAL event this year due to COVID-19, the Refuse To Abuse® 5K will be a 5K fun run/walk that you can do wherever you feel safe and comfortable to do so. We'll be interacting with you on social media so that we can stay socially connected while we are physically distant. Join us on our Facebook Event Page to stay informed. Funds raised benefit the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence and their statewide violence prevention and education work.
