7TH ANNUAL SUEB 5K RUN/WALK OCTOBER 2
Raising Awareness about Domestic Abuse and Promoting Healthy Relationships in our CommunSueB 2016 Logoity

 Boise, Idaho – Today, the Women’s and Children’s Alliance in Boise, Idaho announced that they will host the seventh annual SueB 5K Run/Walk. The memorial run will take place on October 2 at 1 p.m. at Julia Davis Park in Boise. The event will also host a half mile kid’s fun run and have multiple activities for family and individuals alike.

The 5K is held in memory of Susan Elaine Brubaker Newby “SueB” who died in 2008 from a suspicious accident while horseback riding with her husband in the Eagle, Idaho, foothills. After her death, family and friends began to realize that Sue was very likely involved in an abusive marriage.

Sue’s close friends and family wanted to find a way to honor her memory and help others who might be in similar situations. Through the annual SueB Memorial 5K Walk/Run, more than $75,000 has been raised for the WCA Endowment Fund and they hope to raise an additional $25,000 in 2016.

Race registration opens Thursday, May 26, with a discounted registration fee for those who register on or before National Running Day, June 1. Proceeds from the race will benefit the WCA’s Endowment Fund, which provides safety, healing and freedom for survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.

“Don’t wait until your sister, daughter or mother is a victim of domestic abuse or sexual assault, step forward now and make an investment in the WCA to raise awareness about domestic violence,” said Marjory Sente, Sue’s sister

“The SueB 5K is not only an event that supports the WCA, but more importantly an event that encourages a healthy lifestyle and a healthy community – and both of these things include fostering healthy relationships,” said Emily Fascilla, Event Coordinator at the WCA.

Families are encouraged to bring their kids for the half mile Kid’s Fun Run and their four-legged friends to run alongside them in the 5K Run/Walk. Dutch Bros, Boise Fry Company, and Ben & Jerry’s will be attending this family-friendly event and providing post-run indulgences.
