Small Race Preview: 2019 Steps to Safety 5k (Salem)

I can’t think of a better reason to run than for a good cause. Every year the Center for Hope & Safety (CHS) puts on Steps to Safety, an event meant to increase awareness around domestic violence while also raising money for CHS. CHS (formerly Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Service) offers a 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, counseling, and community education and outreach to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking.

This year’s Steps to Safety event, which includes a 5k walk/run, will be held on Saturday, October 5. The race will take place at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training in Salem, Oregon, with a course that will wind through the entire scenic police academy campus.
