Well established local charity joins the ranks of this year's Coventry Fun Run
It’s getting closer to the 30th anniversary of the Coventry Fun Run and Coventry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC) will be joining in with a team of 30 runners and a stall for those who prefer to cheer from the sidelines.
CRASAC has been established in Coventry for 32 years, providing free services to women and girls, men and boys, aged five years and above who are victims or survivors of sexual violence and abuse either now or in the past. They provide a helpline, counselling service, therapy groups for adults and children, support and advocacy for those who choose to go through the criminal justice system and they address the effects of sexual violence in a safe environment.
Sarah Learmonth, from CRASAC, said: “The Fun Run is always a great fundraising event for us and is particularly important this year as a result of the media coverage around high profile celebrities, a huge number of people have felt confident enough to come forward about their own experiences and the numbers of people needing support by CRASAC has gone up by one third over the last six months to nearly 5,000 people.”
Every penny raised for CRASAC from the fun run will help to change the lives of children and adults in Coventry who have suffered sexual abuse, so if you want to run but aren’t sure which charity to choose then please think about CRASAC.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will send you everything you need to join the team.
CRASAC’S helpline number is 024 7627 7772. Open Monday-Friday 10-2pm and Monday & Thursday 6-8pm.
