Supporting survivors and victims of Domestic Violence and Family Violence

Sacramento, CA (MPG) - A Community For Peace (ACFP) created a Community Team for the California International Marathon called ‘ACFP Communities in Motion Relay Team’. The team will run Sunday, December 3, 2017. The team’s goal is to raise $26,000 to support survivors of domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and family violence which includes women, children and men.

This year, A Community For Peace has composed a team of four runners from our community. We are very excited about this marathon team this year because it reflects a true community of healing and peace.

The California International Marathon (CIM) is a marathon organized by runners, for runners! On Sunday, December 3rd, the scenic 26 mile route will start near the Folsom Dam in Folsom, then take the runners through the towns of Orangevale, Citrus Heights, right in front our ACFP office, then continues through Fair Oaks and Carmichael and finally, under a canopy of trees in full fall colors, into the city of Sacramento for the State Capitol finish.

ACFP and the community team ask everyone to pledge for the ACFP Communities in Motion Relay Team. You can pledge online at under the events CIM Run page. To sponsor this team, contact the media contact below. 2
