SueB 3The 8th Annual SueB 5k 10k Run/Walk kicked off Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM)  on the first day of October at Julia Davis Park.  Every year, the WCA partners with the Employee Association of the Ada County Paramedics to host a family friendly afternoon, to celebrate healthy relationships and honor the life of Susan Elaine Brubaker Newby (SueB).

SueB died in 2008 during a mysterious horseback riding incident. After her death, friends and family realized that SueB was likely in an abusive marriage. SueB’s sister, Marjory Sente, and friends, Leslie Hampe and Teresa Andrew, turned to the WCA as a way to honor SueB’s life and increase awareness about domestic violence. Their hope: to help other successful, smart, beautiful women like SueB leave these relationships before it’s too late.

This year, the SueB 5k 10k had a record number of participants, with 680 registered runners and walkers! There was also plenty of fun to be had for everyone, with Dutch Bros, Boise Fry Company, Kanack Attack, Ben & Jerry’s, a bungee trampoline, face painting and bouncy houses!

This 5k 10k not only raises funds to support services at the WCA, but raises awareness surrounding the prevalence of domestic and sexual abuse in our community. Thank you to our amazing sponsors, and to all that came out to honor the life of SueB and kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In the words of Marjory Sente, Sue’s sister, “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.”

 

Thank you so much to Marj, Teresa, and Leslie for allowing the WCA to honor the memory of SueB every year.
