Race Director Laura Sherrer-Townsend mentioned during an interview how she wanted to see all schools have education programs to prevent sexual abuse & violence.
In 2021, we continued with a virtual event and the results were amazing!!
We had athletes running circles in their neighbourhoods, around their community tracks (one was even asphalt!!) and one athlete ran the entire 24 hours on her treadmill in her apartment.
Despite having less athletes, we were able to donate $7710.50 to Saffron Centre AND awarded more belt buckles to 6 athletes who ran over 100 miles.
This told us it's time to have Survivorfest - the CELEBRATION of STRENGTH, SACRIFICE & SURVIVAL in communities ALL over the world.
