Posted: Updated:

From Washoe County:

The Washoe County District Attorney's Office is a proud sponsor of the Safe & Healthy Homes 5K River Run and Walk. The event takes place Saturday, April 20th at 9 a.m. at Idlewild Park, Reno, Nevada. The Washoe County Domestic Violence Task Force promotes the annual event as one of its annual fundraisers to support community resources that are dedicated to preventing family violence and raising awareness. The 2013 event will benefit Safe Embrace, whose mission is recognizing the profound social and individual problems caused by family violence. They are dedicated to stopping the cycle of violence in families. To this end, they provide intervention and prevention services to facilitate the opportunity for all people to live free from abuse.

The entry fee is $30 and a portion of the proceeds will go to Safe Embrace. Past participants and members of the Silver State Striders receive a $2 discount. There will be free food and entertainment from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This year we are also including a children's fun run. Chip timing for the 5K race is provided by OrangeSKY Events; the fun run is fun and not timed.

Register online at and search Safe & Healthy Homes 5K. Runner packet pick-up will be Friday, April 19 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Eclipse Pizza on Mayberry Drive in Reno. Runners can get a discount on food and drinks that night or the day of the event.
