Welcome to the 7th annual Run for Empowerment

A benefit organized by the Women Helping Battered Women (WHBW) Board of Directors.

This family-friendly event raises money to support WHBW’s programs against domestic abuse. We have events for the whole family, including a 5K walk/run, a 10K run, and a 1K kids’ fun run. Our goal this year is $50,000 so come out to the beautiful Burlington Waterfront and support a great cause in your community. This year’s races were held on June 14, 2014.


The Run for Empowerment is a great way to support a vital service in your community, honor someone you know whose life has been affected by domestic abuse and raise awareness of domestic abuse to others. Registering for this event supports all of the vital services that Women Helping Battered Women is able to offer our community.
