The Bachelor’s Social Work Organization is hosting a 5k on the University of Tennessee campus.
Conceptualized and organized by students, this advocacy run is designed to create conversation;
conversations that will give voices to victims. Four specific issues have each been assigned a color and
host organization to allocate portions of the profits to. Come decked out in the advocacy color(s) you
would like to represent! This event is more than running towards a finish line; it is a race to shine a
light and speak up for the person in the statistics--for the one.
The four issues that we will be advocating for are:
· Lime Green represents mental illness. Donations for this cause will be made to Helen Ross McNabb.
· Purple represents domestic violence. Donations for this cause will be made to the YWCA.
· Teal represents sexual assault. Donations for this cause will be made to the Sexual Assault Center of Tennessee.
· Red represents substance abuse. Donations for this cause will be made to Cornerstone of Recovery.
