The Refuse To Abuse® 5K is a unique event that takes you around every level of T-Mobile Park, from the top of the players' tunnel to the final lap around the field. Stepping out on the field level of a major league ball park is an awe-inspiring moment that few have experienced! Funds raised benefit the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) and their statewide violence prevention and education work.
Refuse To Abuse® is a 27-year partnership between the Seattle Mariners and WSCADV. With spokespeople that included Kyle Seager, Justus Sheffield, and Scott Servais, Refuse To Abuse® has reached millions of Mariners fans over the past 27 years with messages that promote healthy, respectful relationships.
We believe that domestic violence is 100% preventable and that we all have a role to play in stopping this violence before it starts! By participating and fundraising for the Refuse To Abuse® 5K you will be a part of the solution. Join us in spreading this message and educating young people about healthy, respectful relationships.
Funds raised support our statewide violence prevention efforts, including: youth engagement, the development of concrete tools to help start conversations with young people about respectful relationships, and the work we do to advocate for better laws and programming to prevent future violence for survivors of abuse.
My name is Mackenzie Parcell, I am the Event Coordinator for the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence. I have been with the Coalition for 4 years now and in fact one of my first experiences after joining the staff was our 2019 Refuse To Abuse® 5K! The 5K instantly became one of the best parts of my job and it has been a treat to work with both my team at the Coalition and our amazing supporters at the Seattle Mariners and T-Mobile Park to continue this beloved event. 2023 marks the 12th anniversary of our 5K and we have participants returning who have been with us since the inagural event.
Working in the domestic violence field isn't always the easiest place to find joy but that's why this 5K is so special to so many - it's a fun, lively, family-friendly, community event that brings people together to celebrate healthy relationsips. It's an honor to work not only against domestic violence but towards a world where everyone can live and love without fear.Contact the Organizer Contact the Organizer
