On April 19, 2014, NCVAN hosted its 4th Annual 5K Walk/Run Stride for Survivors. This USATF certified 5K route through historic Oakwood and scenic downtown Raleigh has a start/finish at the NCVAN Crime Victim Memorial Garden on E. Lane Street by the Governor's Mansion. This is a place where loved ones have engraved the names of the crime victims into bricks that form a path as a memorial to the lives taken too soon. Many participants of our event formed teams in honor of victims and survivors and wore signs or t-shirts with the names of their loved ones and friends. We invite runners, walkers, crime victims, survivors, family members, concerned citizens and all those who would like participate in honor of all crime victims to the 2015 event.
If you are interested in volunteering for the 5th Annual NCVAN 5K Walk/Run Stride for Survivors, please contact Elizabeth Watson at 919-831-2857.
