The Betty Griffin Center Staff and Board of Directors want to thank the walkers, sponsors and volunteers who took part in the 9th Annual Run for Peace 5K on  April 8 at the St. Augustine Pier.

The numbers are still coming in, but thanks to your support, we raised several thousand dollars through this annual fundraiser  — with all proceeds used to help end domestic violence and sexual abuse in St. Johns County.

Check out video shorts from the event on our YouTube Channel!

Also, check out the list here of winning runners and walkers in each age category!

Thanks for supporting our vision of peace at home… and the world…and we hope to see you all again next April!
