Steps For Survivors: A Virtual Tri-county Community Miles Challenge

Saturday, May 1-Monday, May 31, 2021

As our everyday lives have shifted in response to COVID-19, so have community events. For the first time in 26 years, Safe Voices will be putting our annual 5K on hold and offering a brand new virtual event called Steps for Survivors.

This virtual community event challenges participants to collectively run or walk 4,400 miles – the approximate square mileage of the tri-county footprint that Safe Voices serves. If we can’t be together, let’s celebrate what we can do together.

Participants set a personal goal and log their miles with us May 1-May 31. In addition, participants can fundraise to benefit local survivors of domestic violence and sex trafficking. Whether it's 10 miles or 100 miles, your progress can be logged from anywhere, so anyone can participate! 

Need a little motivation to lace up? There will be raffle prizes for participants who reach milestones with their miles and donations raised. More on that coming soon! 

Join us as we raise funds to support Safe Voices' mission: to support and empower those affected by domestic violence and engage the community in creating social change in Androscoggin, Oxford, and Franklin counties. 

Registration Options

Basic Registration: $15
Basic registration includes a digital race bib, a finisher’s certificate, and your own fundraising page to collect donations and pledges from family and friends.

Premium Registration: $30
Premium Registration includes all the basic registration items plus a commemorative men or women’s race tech shirt. *Shirts will be available for pick-up mid-May.

Couch Potato: $44
Know your limits and sit this one out! This one time donation of $44 comes with a free gift. Friends and family may still donate in support of your generosity, and you can set up your own fundraising page to collect donations and pledges.

*Why 44??? Safe Voices was founded in 1977, making this our 44th year of providing advocacy and support to survivors in Androscoggin, Franklin, and Oxford counties! 

No matter what level you choose to participate at, you’ll automatically get your own fundraising page where you can easily and securely accept donations online. The money you raise goes to support those affected by domestic violence, abuse, and sex trafficking.
