It is with mixed emotions that I have made the decision to cancel this year’s SKL Memorial 5K ~ Families Against Violence Run/Walk. The 5k is held to bring awareness to the violence in our City, to provide an event that will allow families and friends impacted by gun violence and violence as a whole to come together in memory of a loved one lost to violence. Funds raised from this event are used to provide scholarships to children who have lost a parent, guardian or love one to violence and it is very important to the Foundation to be able to be able to remain true to our mission. With very low pre-registered runners/walkers this year and low turnout last year, it just isn’t feasible for us to hold the 5K this year. We would like to thank everyone for your continued support of the SKL Memorial 5K and we hope to be able to bring the 5K to you all again in the future.
