About The Event:

50 Mile Warrior Run

5K and 10K Awareness Run

The Purple Mile and Block Party

Grace Lahey, Domestic Violence Survivor, Will be Running 50 Miles On April 20th to raise awareness for victims and survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault- a "Warrior Run"

Show your support by sponsoring her run. Each dollar symbolically represents a mile. Grace will be physically running 50 but we hope our community will sponsor 1000 in support of the mission of the Wesley Shelter! 

While we encourage everyone to do their best, our goal is to raise awareness and enjoy the day with our community. All participants will receive a commemorative award for supporting the Wesley shelter and raising awareness for domestic violence and sexual assault.  

*There will be a timer at the finish line and but this is an unofficial run. 

*8:30am April 20th

Funds raised from running participants, are used to support the mission of the Wesley shelter, the events of the day, as well as your T-shirt, if you choose to get one. 

The day will culminate with the purple mile.  This route will go through downtown Wilson and start an end at the Wesley Shelter  

We will have a 1 mile silent walk to remember victims lost to sexual assault and domestic violence   

Followed by a 1 mile victory lap by to celebrate and acknowledge survivors as well as Grace's final 50th mile  where you can cheer her on as she crosses the finish line  

Purple mile participants can walk in the silent mile or line the streets for both the silent mile and victory lap to cheer on Grace and show your support for survivors in the community  

The purple mile is free to participate, and open to all members of the community

The block party will begin at the Wesley shelter parking lot at roughly 5:30 PM with the purple miles. Estimated to begin at 6 PM.  

T-shirts and magnets will also be available for sale at the block party   

Your participation shows the family and friends of victims as well as survivors that their community supports them and sees them and cares about the challenges they have faced.
