On Sunday, February 9th, join the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center for its 35th Anniversary of the TOGETHER WITH LOVE RUN/WALK at Lovers Point Park in Pacific Grove. The 10K and 5K races starting at 9:00 AM, are open to competitive runners, joggers, and fun walkers – rain or shine!
Participants can pre-register online through noon February 7th at www.mtryrapecrisis.org/
The “Together With Love” Run/Walk is a fundraiser that attracts some 1,200 runners and walkers per year. 100% of the funds raised are used to support counseling, crisis intervention services for survivors of sexual assault, and community prevention education programs for children and adults.
Because of the uncertain future of federal funding, the Center has a goal of raising more funding locally than ever before. Supporters who can’t participate on race day can pledge financial support through the registration site: https://runsignup.com/Race/
The registration fee for the 10K/5K is $42 through February 1, then $45 through Feb. 7. Race day registration is $50 at the event. The 1K Kids’ Fun Run begins at 8:15 a.m. The price is $15. All participants in the 10K/5K receive a long-sleeved performance running T-shirt, after-race refreshments, and qualify for a prize drawing. Medals will be awarded three deep in each age group. Kids in the Fun Run receive a participant medal and goodie bag, and may purchase a T-shirt at the event.
