Raising awareness on domestic violence through annual 5K run

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - Runners gathered at the starting line to defeat an opponent, domestic violence.

It was the 21st annual John Polo 5k run at Corning Community College.

The race was organized in conjunction with Yards for Yeardly, a support group where people across the nation run or walk a total of 500-million yards to raise awareness on domestic violence.

"I think it's wonderful to a see a lot of people part of this," Connie Park, the Executive Director of Human Resources and Title XI Coordinator for CCC, said. "It's a nice mixture of being healthy physically and promoting healthy relationships and promoting a cause that expands our knowledge about that."

All entry fees will be donated to the one love foundation, an organization that aims to end relationship abuse through educational workshops.
