With the school year wrapping up, the GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) Club is sponsoring a Social Distance 5K and 10K to give members of the community an opportunity to take a break, get outside, and support a great cause. GLOW is using the event to fundraise for Jersey Battered Women’s Service (JBWS) a Morris-County based nonprofit that provides safety, support and solutions for domestic violence.
As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, more cases of domestic violence are occurring, and supporting a local women’s shelter seemed to be a logical way to help. Members of the community can pledge to run a 5K or a 10K on their own time between May 17th and 23rd. To sign up, please click here.
Runners are encouraged to donate $5 for a 5K or $10 for a 10K. Of course, participants may donate more if they are comfortable. To donate, visit https://www.jbws.org/donate
Also, be sure to send your photos to @MBS.GLOW to be included on the club’s Instagram page.
