The Family Crisis Center is hosting the Purple Ribbon Run on Saturday at Jefferson Lake in Rigby, Idaho.

The Purple Ribbon Run is an annual awareness event that is 5k or 1-mile run or walk. Raffle prizes donated by the community will be offered after the race is complete. It is free to register, and all are welcome to participate or attend.

“The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about domestic abuse in our area,” said Chloe Aponte the public wellness coordinator and intern supervisor at the crisis center. “To stand in solidarity with survivors, have them be able to participate and see the community support.”
