The Safe Center Raises $72K At Annual 5K Run/Walk

More than 300 Long Islanders laced up their running shoes to participate in the second annual TSCLI5K Run/Walk to benefit The Safe Center, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, the leading victim service organization in Nassau County on Sunday, April 7, 2024.

The event raised more than $72,000 to support the Safe Center’s work with victims and survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, human trafficking and more.

“So much of our work is about empowerment,” said Joshua Hanson, executive director of The Safe Center. “About empowering communities to understand these issues better, to respond appropriately, it’s about empowering victims and survivors to move beyond the abuse that happened to them; that they’re not the bad thing that happened to them, that they can move beyond that and we’re there to support them.’

Events included multiple divisions, as well as a Fun Run for kids. The overall winning runner finished in under 23 minutes.

The event was sponsored by local companies including Steel Equities and All Round Foods.
