Running or walking with friends adds to the fun! Here are ten ways to spread the word and get others to join you!

  1. REGISTER early and tell your friends. Sign up online here. You will receive emails —with colorful event photos and links to information and registration—which you can forward to your friends and family so you don’t have to do all the explaining. Encourage your friends to tell their friends!
  2. SHARE with your Facebook friends. Go to the Goodwill Refuse To Abuse® 5K at Safeco Field Facebook page and pick among the many posts to share. Share more than once—most of us need reminders!
  3. Know a baseball fan? What fan wouldn’t enjoy exploring Safeco field on foot—seeing great views as they tour the main concourse and upper view deck, cross the sky bridge over Edgar Martinez Drive, enter the tunnel under the stadium, and finish inside the ballpark on the warning track. Send them this event link to check out.
  4. In a regular walking group? Get your walking buddies to sign up for this 5K at Safeco Field. It’s a nice change of venue for your exercise and you help prevent domestic violence. What’s not to like?
  5. Is your work group or teenager looking for a community service project? They can volunteer and get community service hours handing out medals, cheering people on along the course, working a water station, or checking in participants. For more information about volunteering click here.
  6. Looking for a unique birthday party idea for that someone who doesn’t want gifts? Invite your guests to register to walk or jog—their “gift” goes towards preventing domestic violence —even if they can’t attend. You can create a team name in honor of the birthday girl/boy. See Form a Team. And you can always meet up afterwards to continue the birthday celebration!
  7. Looking for a meaningful community activity for your church group, sports team, or work-mates? This event raises money to support the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) and their work statewide to promote healthy relationships and prevent domestic violence. It’s a great way to socialize, have fun, get your group together and benefit a good cause.
  8. Going to a neighborhood or community event? Let us know if you would like to help us distribute event flyers. Email us at 5k@wscadv.org.
  9. Know someone looking for a way to honor a victim of domestic violence? Several people tell us that our event was a joyful way to honor and remember the life of a loved one lost to domestic violence. Set up a team in memory of your loved one or simply come together as a group to support WSCADV’s ongoing efforts to prevent domestic violence.
  10. We are always looking for event sponsors. Might your employer or organization be interested in sponsoring our future 5K events? We can customize sponsorship levels and benefits. Learn about sponsorship opportunities here and contact us at 5K@wscadv.org.
