PAVE and IOW are hosting an awareness walk to raise money to Shatter The Silence of Sexual Violence. Come out and show your support!

Join us in participating in the annual PAVE Walk to Shatter the Silence of Sexual Violence!

According to the CDC, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused. These crimes are extremely prevalent, but shrouded in silence and shame. Every person knows someone who has been affected by sexual assault, but the majority of folks will never even know it! It is up to us to be the voice for everyone who has been silenced by violence!!

This walk is an empowering opportunity to raise awareness about sexual assault as well as to support two organizations that strive to support survivors and draw attention to the prevalence of sexual violence.

Sunday, April 24th 2-5pm

Director Park
Downtown, Between SW 8th and 9th and SW Yamhill and SW Taylor


115 Northwest 5th Avenue

Walk: 2-3pm (Director Park)
Afterparty: 3-5pm (Backspace - food, drinks and live poetry readings!)

Our goal is to have 75 people participating in the walk and for each of those people to find
sponsors for them to walk. We hope each participant can raise $200 in sponsorships – it may
seem daunting, but if you break it down, you’d only need to find:
10 people to sponsor you at $20 OR
20 people to sponsor you at $10

To be a Sponsor:
1. Determine the amount of your gift, suggested donation is $20

2. Put the name of the walker you are sponsoring in the "Name you'd like to display on the donation" field.

3. Fill out payment information

4. Attend the walk after party at Backspace at 3pm on Sunday April 24th!

*Walkers must either collect through sponsorships or give out of pocket a minimum donation of $20 to walk, although the goal is for each walker to raise $200 total in sponsorships.
