In observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, The Harbor and the Clatsop County Domestic Violence Council are holding the Healthy Homes — Taking a Stand Against Domestic Violence 5K Fun Run 2017 Oct. 6. Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the race starts at 10 a.m. The starting line is at the Barbey Maritime Center, 1792 Marine Drive.

The purpose of this all-ages community event is to promote education, prevention and support services for those affected by domestic violence. Also included are a resource fair, music and a pledge to stand against intimate partner violence. Awards for first-, second- and third-place runners are being given, as well as for several other categories.

This event is “rain or shine,” and free for everyone, with a suggested donation of $10 for registered runners/walkers or $20 per group. Donations will directly support services for victims and survivors of intimate partner violence in Clatsop County. Dogs are welcome to join the run, but are not permitted inside the building.
