Run for Ruth

Run for Ruth is an annual House of Ruth event that brings attention to domestic violence and educates on what healthy relationships look like.

The extreme 183-mile walk/run through Southern California will occur over the course of three days, October 10-13. Participants will travel by foot to each stop along the route where they will interact with the local community and remove the stigma from the topic of domestic violence by engaging in open conversation.

Why 72 hours? This walk + run spans the course of 72 hours to highlight the significance of the danger a victim of domestic violence experiences in the first 72 hours after leaving the abuser. The first 72 hours are the most critical for survival.

Run or walk for a portion of the route or run the whole route – it’s up to you! There are no fees to attend and we encourage community members of all ages to walk, run, bring a scooter or a stroller and be an active part of social change to better our community. Register at runforruth.org.

Sponsorships for this event are available and much appreciated.
