Runners and walkers from around the Treasure Valley gathered together on Sunday afternoon at Julia Davis Park to celebrate healthy relationships and raise awareness about domestic vSueB NoMoreiolence at the 10th Annual SueB 5k/10k.

The SueB 5k/10k honors the life of Susan “SueB” Newby, who died in a suspicious horse-riding incident in what many believed was a result of domestic violence. This event brings the community together to remember SueB and the life she lived, while also taking a stand against domestic violence.

“This issue is near and dear to me,” said one participant.  “I grew up in a domestic violence household. I work with children, and a lot of my kids are impacted by domestic violence. This affiliation and SueB connection is because it directly relates to my kids. It is a great cause and I support it 100 percent.”

This is precisely what Sue’s close friends and family hoped to accomplish when they first started the “SueB Stoll” a decade ago. In an interview with Anna Silver of KIVI 6 On Your Side at the event, Sue’s sister Marj said, “We’ve been able to make something positive out of it through this event not only the community outreach, but also being able to raise funds for the SueB endowment.”

Adults and kids alike enjoyed a beautiful afternoon with a bungee trampoline, music and information from the charismatic Michelle Heart from LITE FM 107.9 and Sarah Jacobson from KBOI 2 News Team, Dutch Bros, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Nutrishop, Fleet Feet, the Boise Highlanders, a flag ceremony from Boise Composite Squadron 073, face painting, a pre-race workout, and a kid’s fun run around the Julia Davis Rose Garden.

This event brings together experienced runners and novices, young and old, and people of various backgrounds all for a united purpose — remembering the life of Susan Elaine Brubaker, providing support for those experiencing domestic and sexual abuse and celebrating healthy relationships.

More than 566 registered runners and walkers joined together with children in strollers and four-legged friends along for the ride;  and 54 volunteers, and 27 sponsors participated in the event. Together the event raised over $30,000. This funding will continue help the SueB fund in the WCA Endowment to grow and to ensure support for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence for years to come.

The SueB 5k/10k is more than just a race. It makes a statement that healthy relationships are possible and that our community is passionate about ending domestic violence. We are so grateful that we have a community that supports our work at the WCA and helps us continue to make an impact here in the Treasure Valley. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event and for those of you who spread the word to people in your own communities. You are what made this event such a success!
