ABC10 has partnered with My Sister's House's Run for a Safe Haven, a fundraiser to provide services for domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking victims.
Help these victims heal and prosper and raise awareness to stop these heinous crimes by joining Team ABC10 and walk or run on Oct. 24 at the Race for a Safe Haven and Make A Difference!
Join ABC10's Ryan Yamamoto and Suzanne Phan as they emcee this family and pet friendly event featuring a kids ½ mile run, 5K walk/run followed by a light breakfast, Costume Contest, entertainment and a domestic violence resource fair.
