Please join us on Sunday, May 14th for CHANA's Race Against Abuse 5K and Fun Run as we raise awareness about domestic violence, sexual abuse and elder abuse, and fundraise for CHANA’s mission to empower survivors! Lets rally together to end abuse in our community.

As one of our largest fundraisers of the year, CHANA depends on the #RaceAgainstAbuse to help fund our crisis intervention, emergency shelters, counseling, legal advocacy and safety planning services. While this is a difficult time for all of us, many of CHANA’s clients are in a heightened state of danger due to being isolated in their homes with their abusers. Participating in CHANA’s #RaceAgainstAbuse is a way to stand up against domestic violence in our community, be a voice for those who are suffering, and let them know they are not alone!

5K: $35 through March 31st ($40 thereafter)

We have created a virtual race option for those who would like to participate but are not local, or do not feel comfortable attending an in-person race at this time. Here's how the virtual race works:

1. Register for the virtual event, and sign up for text or e-mail notifications
2. Your race swag will be available for pickup at our pre-race packet pickups, or can be mailed to you at no additional cost. We will begin mailing virtual packets on Tuesday, May 16th.
3. You'll receive a text or email (if you opt in) when the race "starts" on March 14th.
4. Run your race and submit your results either by text message or email (if you've opted in) or by heading to the results page here by May 14th at 11:59 PM Eastern Time). Results update in real time as people submit their times. Be sure to take a selfie/photos and share on the photo page or post on social media with the hashtag #RaceAgainstAbuse.
5. Sit back and enjoy your accomplishment!

*Virtual race performances are not eligible for the overall event awards, but we'll certainly be acknowledging the winners in our post-race communication.

CHANA offers a Jewish response to the needs of persons who experience abuse: physical, psychological, sexual, financial or spiritual.

CHANA provides crisis intervention, education and consultation, and advocates for community awareness, safety and healing. We envision an aware and responsive community where all individuals are empowered to live with security and self-determination.

Because of your support, more victims will be helped. More young people will learn about healthy relationships. More people will find safety, healing and hope. Thank you.
