Program for Aid to Victims of Sexual Assault (PAVSA) is a non-profit sexual violence crisis center in southern Saint Louis County, MN that provides a range of free and confidential services to victim-survivors, their family, and friends ages 13 and up.
Our mission is supporting victim-survivors and their family and friends, educating and building awareness in the community, and advocating for social change in the systems that interact with victim-survivors.
PAVSA runners commit to fundraising a minimum amount prior to race weekend, as outlined below:
- Grandma’s Marathon — $350
- Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon — $350
- William A. Irvin 5K — n/a
The fundraising goal must be reached before the runner may register for the race. If the minimum fundraising amount is not met, the remaining balance will be charged to the runner.
