[ARCHIVED] Go the Distance for Crime Victims 5K

Members of the Linn County criminal justice community are planning this event in conjunction with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (April 21 - 27, 2013).

Once again this year the Go the Distance for Crime Victims 5K Run/Walk has formed a promotional partnership with the Marion Rotary for an exciting weekend of road races in Marion, including a Marathon and Half Marathon held on Sunday, April 22. Running or walking a 5K would be a great warm up to your marathon or half marathon!

Proceeds from the 2014 Go the Distance for Crime Victims 5K Run/Walk will continue to directly benefit victims of crime in Eastern Iowa. The proceeds generated from this event will aid many different types of victims including survivors of homicide/vehicular homicide victims, domestic violence victims, victims of sexual assault and many other crime victims.

Funds will be distributed by the Go the Distance for Crime Victims Committee to either crime victim programs in the community or individuals in need of assistance following their victimization including but not limited to situations where court-ordered restitution either falls short or is unavailable. Victims of crime or service providers who would like to request needed funds may contact Diane Albers at [email protected] or call 319-892-6350.

Go the Distance is a Section 501(c) (3) non-profit organization under the laws of the United States of America.
