Last Sunday (March 3, 2019), women, men, and, children in Los Angeles slipped on their running shoes for a good cause — the annual Women Run LA (WRLA), which seeks to empower women in the community.
Over 300 people descended upon Hansen Dam (Lakeview Terrace Recreational Center) for the historic event, which benefited Safe Passage Heals, whose mission is to help break the cycle of domestic abuse by healing and empowering women and their children, enabling them to live new, safe and productive lives.
The WRLA fitness event included a Health & Fitness Expo, the Hydration Cafe, food trucks, Kids’ Fun Zone conducted by Tigerman, who run anti-bullying campaigns in schools (www.tigerman.com)
“Safe Passage Heals is proud to be a part of this very important event,” said Safe Passage Heals founder and CEO, Trish Steele. “Safe Passage continues to support women and children who have experienced violence. As an organization, we seek to empower and rebuild the lives of these women and children so they too can find love and success.
“She adds: “Many people missed out on a great day to run and no rain was there😇for God provided many women and their families the power to embrace and support one another. I want to thank Maggi, Jonathan, Julie, and all the WRLA volunteers for a lively event 🙏🏻 We are grateful for all who have attended and for those who continue to support Safe Passage Heals.”
