Washington Lake Park - 646 Hurffville Cross Keys Road, Sewell

Walk or run the race in someone's honor or memory.

The Empower 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk is all about empowerment and joining together as a community to raise awareness against violence in southern New Jersey. Violence and trauma touches all our lives - as a survivor, as the loved one of a survivor, as advocates. 

At this year's event, we invite you to walk or run in honor/memory of someone whose life has been affected by violence or someone who has paved the way for services that support survivors. We encourage you to start a team in honor or memory of that special person. 

Start a team that celebrates the:

  • Healing & empowerment of a survivor
  • Memory of lost loved ones 
  • Passion of a local advocate 

Your involvement as a runner, walker, sponsor, or donor will support survivors and send the message that our community wants to put an end to violence. Event proceeds will provide 24/7 crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy and safe housing for victims of violence and trauma and their families.  


When you commit to sponsoring the Empower 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk you are sending a message to the community that you are dedicated to ending violence and that you support services that help victims become survivors. Your partnership with Center For Family Services will play a key role in keeping children and families safe.
