_ The 2023 SueB 5k and 3k Family Friendly Scavenger Hunt:
Who was SueB?
A vivacious, intelligent woman who is missed dearly every day. February 9, 1955 – April 4, 2008
Susan Elaine Brubaker Newby died in 2008 during a mysterious horseback riding incident. After her death, family, and friends realized that SueB – her nickname – 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 violence. Their hope: “to help other successful, smart, beautiful women like SueB leave these relationships before it’s too late.”
Continuing to honor the memory of Susan “Sue B” Newby, The Sue B 5K race will be in its 14th year in 2023 kicking off on Sunday, October 1 at 12 pm at Julia Davis Park. In addition to the race, there will be a community resource fair starting at 10:30 that is open to the public. This is an opportunity to discover and learn about the fantastic resources that our community has to offer. Raising awareness and encouraging important discussions about domestic abuse has always been a passion of Sue’s family and friends. The scavenger hunt stroll is designed for families to have a fun day experience accessible to all. Those who participate will have an opportunity to learn about the WCA's services through a scavenger hunt centered around the WCA's services and resources.
100% of race fees support our Endowment Fund to ensure the WCA can maintain our services and serve our clients for many years to come. The object of this Endowment is to provide funds in perpetuity for the operation of all of the WCA’s programs to provide safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault.
In the heartfelt words of Sue’s sister Marj Sente: "Don’t wait until your sister, daughter or mother is a victim of domestic abuse or sexual assault, step forward now and make an investment in the WCA to raise awareness about domestic violence."
This is a great opportunity to celebrate positive relationships with your family, friends, and coworkers. Will you join us?
