)-- During the thick of 5K season in St. Louis, one charity puts a unique spin on the popular event for local athletes. Race for Jane, an annual 5K benefiting Jane Doe Advocacy Center, will honor local survivors of sexual violence. Each participant receives a card detailing the story of a local “Jane Doe” who has experienced an act of sexual abuse. They will attach these cards to their race bibs and dedicate their race to these anonymous victims and survivors of sexual violence.
Race for Jane will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the Sons of Rest Pavilion in Tower Grove Park. Events include a 5K Walk and Run, 1M Senior Strut, and 1M Kids Fun Run. Participants will compete for prizes in all race events. New this year is an exclusive pancake breakfast for participants, family, and friends. Proceeds from the event benefit Jane Doe Advocacy Center, a non-profit legal service center for survivors of sexual violence here in the St. Louis area. Online registration for participants, sponsors, and breakfast tickets is available at www.RaceForJane.com.
On-site registration will begin at 9am on Saturday, April 18, with events beginning promptly at 10am. For more information and online registration, visit www.RaceForJane.com.
