In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, over 1,500 community members, including 75+ teams, will take to the pavement to raise awareness about domestic violence and help Women In Distress reach its goal of raising $140,000, which can provide nearly 1,500 nights of safe shelter for adults and children affected by domestic violence.


This year’s honorary co-chairs, Julie Guy and Donny Michaels from The Coast 97.3 Morning Show, as well as celebrity guests, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, will kick off the event at 6:45am with a warm up, followed by timed race for runners and a more leisurely stroll for walkers, strollers and dogs at 7:00am.


Friends, family, co-workers and dogs are encouraged to come out and walk or run in honor of those affected by domestic violence.  A registration fee is required in order to participate. Pre-registered adults are $25, while youth participants, ages 6-12 are $15 and dogs can walk for $10. Kids ages 5 and under are free.


SAFEWALK participants will enjoy a complimentary breakfast, t-shirt and goodie bag. Kids can enjoy a variety of fun activities and everyone can visit local vendors within our vendor village. Thank you to our sponsors, including Pollo Tropical, Sun Sentinel, JM Family Enterprises, Inc., SE Toyota, the Kelsey Group and Whole Foods for helping keep families safe.
