Planning for the YWCA 5K

I just finished registering for the YWCA’s 2 Minute 5K and creating our Threads of Compassion OKC team.

This is an event that we’ve participated in since 2010. Some years Morgan and I and Joanna have walked the whole thing together, some years we’ve hung out and visited while others ran and walked, and last year Joanna ran the Kiddie K with a friend.

Though it’s usually windy and often cool, this is an event that I look forward to each year. It’s so encouraging to see so many people gather together to support survivors of sexual assault. We get to visit with people that stop by our booth to say hi, and to say thanks. Each year ladies stop by to let us know that the scarves we are providing are making a difference for survivors. They are an encouragement to them at a traumatic time.

So, if you’re in the OKC area please think about joining our team and hanging out with us the morning of April 22nd. If you’re not in the OKC area, you can still be part of our team -simply choose the “Snooze for SAAM” option on the registration.

If you’re interested in a bit more information, check out the Threads of Compassion OKC site for the info we shared there.
