WHAT IS ILLUMINATE AUSTIN?
Last year, over 1000 Austin residents came out for the first-ever Illuminate Austin, Walk for Safe Families. Illuminate is a revival of a 22-year SafePlace tradition of hosting community walks. The walk raises essential funds for SafePlace programs-- but they also help to deliver a message-- that help is available-- to the thousands of homes in our cty where violence and fear still prevail.
This year's Walk promises to be even bigger and better than last year's! Please join us as we welcome Austin community leaders, survivors, teams, moms, dads, kids, and dogs to the 2nd Annual Illuminate Austin, Walk for Safe Families!
