About 5K

In commemoration of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, KAFSC is hosting our annual family-friendly event – Purple 5K Dash to End Domestic Violence. This 5K run/walk campaign draws awareness to domestic violence and brings families, friends and the community together in an interactive way to raise funds for our Rainbow House Shelter.

However, this year, we will be continuing our collaboration from our “You Are Not Alone” National Crime Victims' Rights Week campaign back in April, and partner with Garden of Hope and Arab-American Family Support Center for the 5K Run/Walk. Garden of Hope and Arab-American Family Support Center are Queens-based organizations addressing issues of domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual assault in their respective immigrant communities, and providing culturally appropriate direct services similar to those offered by KAFSC.

Impact of Your Participation

Your support will help us raise critical resources for victim-survivors of violence, and also engage the community in the movement of creating a violence-free society in our lifetime. The funds raised will go towards supporting women and children in crisis with much needed food, housing, counseling, and other services.

Lend us a hand in fundraising for one of three organizations: Arab-American Family Support Center, Garden of Hope, and KAFSC Rainbow House Shelter. You may set up 1) your own personal fundraising page or 2) for your team / organization. Share and create your personal appeal, and invite your friends and family to join your donation page.

The support of our community has enabled us to lift many families, and guide them to safety and security. It is possible because of your continuous participation and engagement. Please help spread the word through your list serv, Facebook, and other forms of social media with the following hashtags:
