Welcome to the Victims' Rights Week event in Colorado Springs for 2019!

A 5K fun run and 1 Mile walk to honor Victims' Rights Week 2019. 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 7-13, the fun run is a week or so later on Saturday, April 20.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

It was a lovely sunny morning in north Monument Valley Park, not too hot and ideal for a fun run. Thank you for a great turnout and casting your votes for the charitable organization that will receive the proceeds from the event. After counting all of the votes — and having to double-count because it was so close — we can announce that Safe Passage received the most votes!

We have now posted the results:

Unfortunately, several runners were misdirected and took a shortened route, reducing their race to just over 2 miles in length. We have done our best to identify those participants and their results are marked with an asterisk in the results lists. We apologize for this error.

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

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.
