You will get an awesome, official “2013 No Fear in Love Race” t-shirt, and the opportunity to win ‘to be’ announced prizes, and you will really make a difference in a young adult’s life.
One person can really make a difference . . .
That could be you. Do you want to help our young adult’s have a great future? Well, if the answer is yes, don’t wait. You don’t want to miss the third annual “No Fear in Love 6 mile Race”- to raise awareness about healthy dating relationships in 16-24 year olds and to send a teen dating abuse survivor to college at Mason.
Everybody deserves fearless love, especially during this love season, so come make a difference; you will never be the same again.
We cannot meet our objective of raising $3000.00, so a teen dating abuse survivor can attend George Mason without you.
6:00 a.m. - Doors open and Registration
6:30 a.m. - Dedication Service
6:45 a.m. - How cool! Watch the Sun Rise with us. Run!!!

9:00 a.m. - Refreshments, group and individual race prizes, raffled items, along with discussion about the promotion of healthy dating relationships in 16-24 year olds - See address for discussion below
The theme color is purple for royalty, which is how everyone deserves to be treated in their relationships. We encourage you to wear purple. If you wish to honor a survivor of domestic violence or pay tribute to someone who is no longer with us, we encourage you to do so.
This is for a great cause:
Teen dating violence is really a hidden problem, especially in our teens and young adults, with statistics reporting about 1 out of 3 teens experiencing some type of abuse in their lives. This is evident by the recent tragedies which have occurred on college campuses, close to the Northern Virginia area.
I don't know if you know this, but there is not much/any focus on teaching this age group about healthy dating practices. Instead, we, society in general, wait until they get involved with negative dating relationships to act. This race/scholarship is an opportunity to promote healthy dating in an innovative, thought provoking way; to tell these late teens and young adults that they deserve to be championed in their dating relationships and in life. And sadly, if they have gotten involved with dating violence, this scholarship is an opportunity to help give them a fresh new start in life.
The participants of this event will help change the future for the lives of these young adults by their generous donation. All proceeds will be donated to the No Fear in Love 6 mile Race Fund.
