A Race to End Domestic Violence
Jingle Jam 10K isn’t just a run; it’s a powerful initiative with a heartfelt mission. As a registered 501(c)3 fundraiser, every step you take at JJ10K brings us closer to supporting SafeHomes Domestic Violence Center, a cause that truly matters.
JJ10K was born from the vision of a survivor who received invaluable services from SafeHomes. It’s a race with a purpose, fueled by the determination to give back and make a change.
When you participate in JJ10K, you become part of our Sleigh DV community. Sleighing DV means stepping up as an advocate. It means raising your voice to bring awareness to domestic violence and standing beside survivors as they transform into thrivers.
You Can Get Involved, Too
Joining our Sleigh DV community means embracing a mission bigger than any race. It means jingling your way beyond the JJ10K finish line by fundraising. Your participation doesn’t just support a race; it supports hope, healing, and change. Together, we can make a difference and create a world free from domestic violence—one step at a time.
Becoming a sponsor is a powerful commitment to the cause of ending domestic violence and supporting SafeHomes. By joining us as a sponsor, you are not only helping to make the race itself a reality but also enabling SafeHomes to expand its vital programs and reach more survivors in need. Your support raises awareness, funds, and hope, ensuring that together, we can work towards a world free from domestic violence.
Volunteer registration opens later in October. Joining our Elf Squad is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the race day excitement. As an Elf Squad volunteer, you’ll have the unique opportunity to peek behind the scenes and be the enthusiastic cheerleader who motivates our runners every step as they journey through Evans, GA.
