The runners started the Justice in Motion 5K Run at McKey Park.

Organizers say the goal is to let the know more about sexual violence and educate people on how to help prevent these acts from happening in our communities.

"We're trying to get the message out there that sexual assault can affect anybody. It's doesn't just affect a certain group of people, male, female, any race," said Tessa Carder. "We're trying to get the message out there that this is a community problem that the community needs to get behind."

Carder says the issue is growing among men. She says residents as a whole need to know how to protect themselves.

This event was hosted by The Haven, which serves nine counties assisting the Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assaults.

    Carry two things with you if you are out and about: A collapsible police baton, around 16" long, and a pistol. ( please qualify for and acquire a concealed weapons permit) If confronted, and your attacker has no firearm, beat your attacker with the baton to ward him off in order give you time to draw your pistol. If he has pulled a gun at initial contact you are unable to use either weapon because he has the initiative. Your circumstances dictate what to do.
