Betty Griffin House 5K Run & Walk
Come join us for the Betty Griffin House 5K Run & Walk that is sure to be another success! The race begins at 8:00m at the St. Augustine beach Pier, leading participants down scenic A1a and along the ocean. Last year 565 participants attended to raise over $27,000.00 for awareness regarding domestic abuse. Awards are given to the top three finishers of various age groups. Cash prizes were given to the first overall male and female winners. For those worried about staying hydrated, fear not, water stations are located every mile for your convenience. The Betty Griffin House is the only organization in St. Augustine that has provided services for victims of domestic abuse for the last 24 years with no cost to the victim. Last year The Betty Griffin House received 1900 calls relating to domestic abuse. All proceeds will go towards helping Betty Griffin House save the lives of domestic abuse victims in St. Johns County. So come out to support these local heroes and help raise money while having fun in the sun.
