5K Run/Walk at GCC to benefit domestic violence prevention and awareness

By Billie Owens

The Honors Program at Genesee Community College will sponsor a "Break the Silence - End the Violence" 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Sept. 11.

It's at the Batavia campus. Registration starts at 8 a.m. in the college's Forum; running starts at 9.

Registration is $15 per person if registered before Sept. 4, or $20 after.

All proceeds from the run will be donated to the YWCA of Genesee County's Domestic Violence program. Registration costs include a chicken barbeque lunch after the race. (A vegetarian alternative will be provided.)

This event will kick-off the start of Genesee's Honors Program service projects as well as Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which starts in October.

"The domestic violence initiative is very dear to my heart," Lori Mould, Honors student at Genesee said. "We hope that community members come out to support this worthy cause and to spread how important domestic violence awareness is."

Pre-sale registration can be made at the Student Activities office of Genesee Community College by calling 343-0055, ext. 6261 or the Genesee County YWCA at 343-5808.
