‘Take Back the Night’ 5K on March 31 to raise money, awarness of violence against women

Every two minutes in the United States, someone becomes a victim of sexual violence.
To raise awareness of the problem and decrease violence against women and children, East Tennessee State University will host the eighth annual “Take Back the Night” 5K race on Saturday, March 31.
All proceeds from the race will benefit programs supporting survivors of sexual violence, including the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners program at Johnson City Medical Center, which provides competent, compassionate medical care for victims of sexual violence.
The race starts at 9:30 a.m., with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Cave Patio area of ETSU’s D.P. Culp University Center. The entry fee is $16.
The event is a State of Franklin Track Club-certified King and Queen 5K road race, and the course traverses the ETSU campus and the historic Tree Streets community in Johnson City.
