BENEFITING: National Network to End Domestic Violence
EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 27
On September 19, 2017, Allstate Good Life ® , in partnership with Emerging Businesses, will host the Allstate Good Life Sprint & Stride ® 5K Run/Walk. This year’s event will support Allstate Foundation Purple Purse, helping to raise funds and awareness for victims of domestic violence and financial abuse.
You can support this important cause by participating and making a donation. To donate, click on the “DONATE” box on the right side of the page. The first 2,000 employees/associates who donate a minimum of $25 will receive a short sleeve event t-shirt. All donations will benefit Allstate Foundation Purple Purse community partners who provide services to victims of abuse in local communities across the country. Allstate will contribute 15 cents for every dollar donated.
Allstate Foundation Purple Purse is the longest running national campaign focused on ending domestic violence through a proven solution: financial empowerment services for survivors. While most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, financial abuse happens in 99 percent of all cases of domestic violence.
To get your preferred shirt size, please complete your donation no later than Monday, Aug. 14. Your donation does not register you for the Sprint & Stride ® on Jiff Challenges or for a Sprint & Stride ® event at your office. You can register here.
If you are located in Northbrook, IL, your t-shirt will be available for pick-up on Sept. 12 at the Sprint & Stride ® Expo. If your work location is outside of Northbrook, your t-shirt will be shipped to you. You will be asked to provide your shipping address while completing the donation form.
Donations will go directly to the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), which will divide the donation among all the 2017 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Community Partner nonprofit organizations.
