Run DV Out of Town

5 Chicagoland Domestic Violence Advocacy Agencies have joined forces as a coalition and formed Run Domestic Violence Out of Town to raise funds & awareness for survivors.








Time Until Chicago Marathon


Run DV Out of Town

Our runners sign up to run The Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the Hoka One One Chicago Half-Marathon, and the Hoka One One 5k. The marathon takes place on October 9, during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The half marathon and 5k both occur on September 25. 

 By participating in this collaborative campaign, runners have the opportunity to raise both money and awareness for Chicago area domestic violence service providers. Chicago’s Run DV Out of Town benefits Arab American Family Services, the Center for Advancing Domestic Peace, Family, Rescue, The Network: Advocating Against Domestic Violence, and SHALVA. Together, they offer shelter, 24-hour crisis hotlines, legal advocacy, counseling, and violence prevention programs.
