What: 4th Annual Shelter House Luminaria Run
When: Saturday, December 6, 2014
Time: 4:30 pm

Register here for the 4th Annual Luminaria Run to End Domestic & Sexual Violence presented by Shelter House. This run will take place on Saturday, December 6 at 4:30pm. The course for this twilight run will be lit with more than 2,000 luminaria bags, representing how Shelter House and our partners light the way to a safer place for victims of domestic and sexual violence in our community.

The 5k/9k run begins at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., 14059 Emerald Coast Pkwy, Destin, FL 32541, and winds through the Indian Bayou neighborhood. We chose the 9k distance to represent that a woman is assaulted or beaten every nine seconds in the United States. We encourage everyone to come out to cheer for your favorite runner at the start line at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. We are all lighting the way to a safer place for victims of domestic and sexual violence.
