BENEFITING: One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love
EVENT: Yards for Yeardley
EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2016
This year WVU Women's Lacrosse is working with wellWVU to bring One Love Foundation and awareness about relationship violence to campus. We are hosting several Escalation Workshops for all 56 Club Sports teams we have at WVU. Following the workshops that are being held at the end of March and beginning of April, we are hosting a FREE 5k Run/ Walk for Yards for Yeardley. Most sports teams complete the challenge of running one million yards over the course of their preseason, but here at WVU this Spring we are hoping to complete it in ONE day by hosting this 5K campus challenge event that is open to everyone on campus as well as in the community! The 5K will be April 22nd at 6:30 pm (registration at 6:00), beginning outside of the Student Rec Center. WVU's Title IX and our local resource the RDVIC will be there giving out information about local assistance for relationship violence, and following the race wellWVU will be holding post race yoga to help cool down and stretch. Refreshments, music and more will be available at the race! So come out and join WVU in raising awareness for relationship violence and Yeardley Love's story!
