Do you want to get involved in the Salt Lake Area Domestic Violence Coalition? Well, if you do then you are in luck. There are currently two upcoming events that are taking place throughout May.
The first is the yard sale. The Coalition is currently collecting items and services as donations. It will take place on Saturday May 17, 2014 from 8 a.m. and continuing on until 1 p.m. that afternoon. The location will be 1930 West 7800 South in West Jordan. All of the proceeds of the sale will be used to raise awareness for domestic violence. Please do not hesitate to donate physical items, monetary value or services if you are interested. No donation or service is ever “too little,” and every bit counts. Contact April Ensign if you would like to donate at 801-944-7042 or at AEnsign@cottonwoodheights.utah.gov. Apart from donating, make sure to stop by that day for a browse of some incredible items to purchase.
The Coalition and the Utah PTA have teamed up to organize the Healthy Relationships 5K to be held on Saturday May 31, 2014 at Liberty Park (589 East 1300 South) in Salt Lake City. The Grizzlies mascot will be there along with an amazing band and dancers. The local businesses who are supporters are Café Rio, Inside and Out Cosmetics, Salt Lake Running Company, Utah Grizzlies, eBay, Hawthorne Suites, Planned Parenthood, IHC Hospitals, Spackle Car Wash, Paradise Bakery and Dunkin Donuts.
People of all ages are welcome to go, walkers included. All proceeds will be used to raise awareness for Healthy Relationships in our local schools. Registration is currently under way online at http://www.utahpta.org/stepping-healthy-relationship-5k-registration. You may also visit the 5K Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/steppingup5k.
The 5K check-in will start at 8 a.m. and the race will start at 9 a.m. It is $25 for adults and $15 for teens. There are 12 categories for winners, each winner will walk away with a metal and Grizzlies Fan Fun 4 Pack. We hope to see everyone there! It is not something to be missed!
