Elizabethtown, Kentucky – October 19, 2023
The second annual Monster Dash 5K is just around the corner, and it’s not just another fun run. It’s a purposeful and spirited event designed to raise awareness about domestic violence in our community. Hosted at Severns Valley Baptist Church by the Baptist Heath Hardin Sane Program, this Halloween-themed run is set for this Saturday, October 21, 2023.
Domestic violence affects lives in ways we can’t even begin to fathom. With 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men affected by domestic/intimate partner violence each year, it’s an issue that cannot be ignored. The Monster Dash 5K aims to take a significant step towards addressing this problem head-on. The event is a call to action, an opportunity for everyone to stand together against domestic violence, and a chance to make a real impact in our community.
