“Give a Hoot!” 5K for Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and the
CARE Program is planning a 5K Run/Walk to raise
awareness of sexual assault in Lincoln
County and to help encourage our
community to break the silence and start
talking about it. The 1st Annual SAAM 5K
Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, April
20th at the Siletz Valley Charter School
football field, with the race starting at 9am.
The event is open to all ages and abilities,
and dogs are be invited to participate as
well. Registration is $20 for ages 13 and
over, and $18 for children 12 and under. All
participants that register by March 29th
receive a 1st Annual SAAM 5K t-shirt, as well as a goody
bag. All dogs receive a free bandana if they walk with a
registered participant!
Prizes will be given to the top overall male and female
finishers and master’s male/female, as well as awards
for the top finishers in each age group.
Following the 5K there will be an Earth Day
Fair from 10am to 1pm with local programs,
music, food, crafts and a silent auction. All
community members are invited to the Earth
Day Fair.
All proceeds from the 5K Run/Walk and
silent auction will go directly to services
benefiting victims of domestic violence,
sexual assault, dating violence and stalking
throughout Lincoln County.
Several volunteers are needed to help make
this event run smoothly — see page 2 for
more information about volunteer opportunities.
