Stomp Out Domestic Violence
A Virtual Run/Walk Fundraiser
June 5-19, 2021
Come join us for the first ever Genesis House virtual Stomp Out Domestic Violence run/walk fundraiser to raise awareness for domestic violence issues in Lorain County and honor the lives we have lost. Participants can choose between one of two events, each with their own special meaning attached.
6-mile Individual event:
This six mile individual run/walk is in honor of the six beautiful souls Lorain County lost to domestic violence in 2020. In a few short months, our community lost more people to domestic violence homicide than it had in the past three years. Join us as we honor their lives and raise awareness to domestic violence issues in our community and beyond. All participants will receive an awesome event T-Shirt, and all finishers will receive a commemorative race medal! Participants are encouraged to share why they walk on social media and tag us using #6milesfor6victims #StompOutDV and #WhyIWalk. Individual registration deadline April 30, 2021.
51-mile challenge team event:
This 51-mile challenge is in honor of the 51 men, women, and children whose lives were brutally taken from our community due to domestic violence since 1989. For this challenge you and seven of your friends, family and/or colleagues will run/walk 51 miles cumulatively. Each participant will receive an awesome event T-Shirt, and all finishers will receive a commemorative race medal! Participants are encouraged to create a cool team name, post a picture and to tag us on social media using #GH51milechallenge #StompOutDV and #WhyIWalk. Team registration deadline is April 30, 2021.
