In 2010 the community of Covington WA came together on the last Saturday of September for the first, annual Purple Light Nights Tree Lighting event. Ten years later our event has grown in numbers and this year is our 4th Take a Step Against Domestic Violence 5K walk to honor the victims and survivors. It is a family event where children are welcome and dogs too (must be on a leash). We encourage everyone to dress in purple and be creative with a costume. Cash prizes are given to the most spirited individual and group! Register as an individual or Family and there is an option to form a team! Following the 5K is a FREE BBQ sponsored by New Life Church of Maple Valley. The event culminates with the countdown to light the community tree in hundreds of purple lights. If you can't make the 5K please join us for the tree lighting.

Story

SAT. SEPTEMBER 29th, 2018

Our story begins in 2005 when the Covington Domestic Violence Task Force launched the first annual "Purple Light Nights Campaign" (PLN). The purpose is to shine a purple light in every front porch or business window through the month of October to: Remember the victims who lost their lives to domestic abuse; to Honor the survivors; and give Hope to those still living with abuse. Purple is the symbolic color of domestic violence and recognized nationally. It is a simple thing everyone can do but it also sends a powerful message that domestic violence has NO place in our community. Currently there are cities and counties in 32 states and Canada that participate by holding a PLN event.  (All Proceeds go to provide direct services to victims and education in our local community.)
