Shelter’s Right Hand 5K Walk goes virtual
WHITTIER — Shelter’s Right Hand 24th Annual 5K Walk to benefit the Women’s and Children’s Crisis Shelter is being transformed into a virtual walk.
The open event will take place Saturday, April 25, broadcasting live between the hours of 9-11 am. Instead of gathering in Central Park, the walk will be hosted via Facebook and Instagram.
Anyone can participate. Simply choose your location and walk/run/bike at your own pace, or participate with stay-at-home enthusiasm in your home or yard.
Supporters are encouraged to take a photo and short video and share it using the hashtag #SRHVirtualWalk.
“We will be focusing on thanking our sponsors, supporting organizations/businesses and walkers, raising awareness about domestic violence in these times and promoting a positive experience for our surrounding communities,” the nonprofit said.
Donations of any amount can be made at sheltersrighthand.org. All donations and monies raised go directly to the Women’s and Children’s Crisis Shelter (WCCS), a nonprofit organization providing a shelter, safety and hope to victims of domestic violence.
Shelter’s Right Hand is an all-volunteer, nonprofit auxillary raising funds, promoting awareness and lending support to the Women’s and Children’s Crisis Shelter. Its 5K Walk is held annually in April and generally draws about 700 participants. Since 1981 Shelter’s Right Hand has raised over $2.5 million for victims and survivors at WCCS.
