LOGAN, UT— Citizens Against Physical and Sexual Abuse (CAPSA) will hold its annual Take Back the Night 5K on Friday, May 12, 2017, to bring awareness to the issue of sexual assault in the Cache Valley Community.
Sponsored by Stevens-Henager College, proceeds from the annual 5K will benefit CAPSA's work to support those impacted by sexual abuse and rape. In addition to sheltering individuals and families fleeing domestic violence, the non-profit offers a 24-hour crisis hotline and mobile response team, court advocacy, therapy, a children's program, and many other services in Cache Valley.
“This outstanding organization goes above and beyond to provide the necessary resources for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault,” said James Birman, executive director of the Stevens-Henager College Logan campus. “We're proud to support CAPSA and recognize the vitality of its services for our community.”
Stevens-Henager College sponsors CAPSA fundraisers throughout the year, including a holiday gift-wrapping booth in the Cache Valley Mall and the annual CAPSA Trivia Night.
“It's really important to have an organization, not only to be a sponsor, but to truly become advocates for CAPSA, and Stevens-Henager College has become a constant advocate for us,” said CAPSA Director of Development James Boyd.
The 5K run starts and finishes at the Logan Aquatic Center, taking runners on the scenic Logan River Trail. The family-friendly one-mile walk also starts and ends at the aquatic center. In addition to the night run, the New Day 5K will begin at 9:30 a.m. the following morning. For more information, visit www.capsa5k.org.
