Welcome to the Victims' Rights Week event in Colorado Springs for 2017!

A 5K fun run and 1 Mile walk to honor Victims' Rights Week 2017. National Crime Victims' Rights Week is a time set aside to build public awareness about the challenges crime victims face and to celebrate the hard won progress in victims' rights and services. It is also a time to honor the professionals who assist and offer guidance, information, support and encouragement to victims of crime in our communities.

Although the Victims Rights Week itself is April 2-8, the fun run is a week or so later on Saturday, April 15.

The first 120 registrants (runners or walkers) are guaranteed a race gift, but they're going fast! The more you delay, the more likely you'll miss out, so don't hesitate: register now.

This event is being organized this year to help assist victim advocacy agencies within our community. Each participant will have the opportunity to vote as to which local victim advocacy agency the event will benefit.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

MANY THANKS!

Many thanks to everyone who came along, and who ran, walked, or helped. It was a perfect morning for a fun run: bright, sunny, and not too warm, and we think that everyone had fun. Which, after all, is part of the reason for organizing the run in the first place. The other reasons were, to support the Victims' Rights Week, and to benefit a worthy local victim advocacy agency. This year the winning agency (and only by 1 vote, note!) is Safe Passage.

What is Victims' Rights Week?

Victims' Rights Week is a national week-long observance to honor the professionals who assist and offer guidance, information, support and encouragement to victims of crime in our communities. National Crime Victims' Rights Week is to help remind the public that victims bear the brunt of crime and remind us that we are all vulnerable to crime. Victims' rights are everyone's rights. Without justice to victims of crime, there can be no justice for all.
