Join the Purple Run to confront domestic violence
The University of Michigan Police Department in conjunction with the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's Office will hold the first annual Purple Run in Ann Arbor at 9 a.m. Oct. 24 at Pierpont Commons on U-M North Campus (2101 Bonisteel).
The goal of this 5K run/walk is to both raise awareness for domestic violence and to fundraise for the SafeHouse Center, a local organization that works with survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault.
Every 60 seconds, 20 people are victims of intimate violence and every year an average of 54 officers are killed in the line of duty responding to domestic calls.
"We're pleased to be able to collaborate with our community partners to help raise awareness of this difficult topic," said U-M Police Chief Robert Neumann.
"The UMPD Special Victims Unit not only is dedicated to helping solve intimate partner crimes, but also to helping our community learn more about these crimes and how all of us can take action. I invite our community to help us raise funds to help those who are surviving these crimes."
Register online or sign up at the event and help raise awareness while also helping strengthen community resources for the local Ann Arbor and greater Washtenaw area.
The cost is $30 or $20 for students.
