Q: Do I have to identify as a survivor or loved one?
A: Absolutely not! WINGS honors the confidentiality and privacy of every survivor. And we honor every survivor's choice regarding if and how they wish to disclose their connection to this cause - and the words they wish to use if and when doing so. We anticipate that participants in the WINGS Race for Healing will come from all types of backgrounds - these are all people who care about the cause in some way. No one has to be identified in any way, if they do not wish to be.

WINGS Race for Healing
WINGS is proud to announce its inaugural 5k family fun-run/walk that brings survivors, loved ones and community allies together for a single purpose: to usher in the day when NO adult survivor of child sexual abuse (CSA) walks their path of healing alone.
Consider this: 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men (or 1 in 5 people), whom you know and love, are impacted by CSA trauma. Because our culture has been silent on this issue, most of these individuals have not been able to access healing services that could dramatically improve their lives. WINGS works to create a new future - one where survivors are believed, accepted and supported.
Whether you are a survivor, the loved one of a survivor, or a friend or ally who wants to boldly walk, run, jump or skip alongside us (support from afar is also an option) we invite you to be part of our inaugural WINGS Race for Healing!
WINGS' Race for Healing is a celebration of the resilient power of the human spirit!
Join us October 3, 2015! You'll be glad you did!
