SueB 5k and 3k Scavenger Hunt

October 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Continuing to honor the memory of Susan “SueB” Newby, the 14th annual SueB 5K Fun Run will kick off on Sunday, October 1st at 12 noon at Julia Davis Park. You can sign up to participate here with 5K registration starting at $25.

This event has always been about outreach and honoring the memory of Susan “Sue B ” Newby who died in 2008 during a mysterious horseback riding incident, that was likely a domestic abuse incident.  After her death, family and friends realized that SueB was likely in an abusive marriage. SueB’s sister, Marj, and friends, Leslie and Teresa, turned to the WCA as a way to honor SueB’s life and increase awareness about domestic abuse. Their hope is  to help other successful, smart, beautiful women like SueB leave these relationships before it’s too late.

This year as well as offering a 5K route, we are also inviting families to participate in our 3k stroll for Every-Body. The 3K Urban route provides an opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt that allows you to learn more about the vital services the WCA provides in an engaging way. You can sign up here with a price of $10 for adults and children get in free! Both events raise awareness and encourage important discussions about domestic abuse – a passion of Sue’s family and friends.
