This year we are excited to announce some changes to the race:

Registration Changes

All registrations will be done online this year at CAPSA’s website ( Click on the “2nd Annual 5K Run From Violence” link on the homepage to get signed up. No registrations will be accepted by mail or by phone.

Personal Fundraising Pages

This year in addition to the registration fee, every participant will have a chance to raise more money through personal fundraising pages to support people in our community who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault. While there is no required amount you have to raise beyond the initial registration fee, every little bit will help us better serve our clients at CAPSA. When you log on to the website to sign up for the race, you will set up your very own personal fundraising page. Then you can set a goal of how much money you want to raise for CAPSA and have your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors contribute to help you reach your goal. The best part is that if everyone you know can give just a little bit, it will add up to a lot!

Team Fundraising Pages

If you don’t want to raise the money all on your own, sign up with a team of participants to help raise more money for CAPSA! You can sign up as a family team, or get together with a bunch of friends and start a team. There is no limit to how many people can be on your team, and you can motivate your team members to keep raising money for CAPSA.

More Prizes

Last year the top runners and walkers in the CAPSA 5K “Run From Violence” won prizes. But this year you don’t have to be the fastest runner for a chance at prizes—we are adding a new category of prizes for the Top 3 Individuals and Top 3 Teams that raise the most money through your personal fundraising pages. All you need is a lot of friends and family to help you reach and exceed your fundraising goals, and you will have a chance at some great prizes! Plus any team that raises over $2,500 and any individual that raises over $1,000 will automatically get a great prize.

Thank you for your support of CAPSA. We would not be able to offer the programs and services to the people in our community who need it most without you!
