Start the New Year off right with the Jiggle Butt Run!

Are you excited to get “your rear in gear” for a great cause?!?!
The 2016 Jiggle Butt Run is THIS Saturday, and we would love for you to join us for a healthy start to the New Year while supporting SafeHaven of Tarrant County.

What is the Jiggle Butt Run?

The Jiggle Butt Run 5K  was started 10 years ago to encourage women to have a great time, promote fitness while getting an awesome start toward a healthy new year.

The course meanders through the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) community and surrounding scenic neighborhoods. The Expo and all the fun before and after the race will be indoors at the University Center Building.  Bring your friends, daughters, mothers, and grandmothers and come celebrate your jiggle! The race start and finish will be in front of College Park Center on the UTA campus in Arlington, Texas.

All proceeds from the race will benefit SafeHaven of Tarrant County programs, and we will also be accepting donations of goods to help stock our shelters with daily supplies.

“We are excited to celebrate 10 years of the Jiggle Butt Run 5K Race this year.  Since its inception, founders Mary Hibbs, Shelley Tardy, and Karen Bondurant have passionately supported SafeHaven of Tarrant County and the comprehensive services we provide to families affected by domestic violence in our community.  The donations received from this annual event are significant in achieving our mission to end domestic violence through safety, support, prevention, and social change.”

– Kathryn Jacob, President and CEO of SafeHaven of Tarrant County

Where will SafeHaven be on Race Day?

Make sure to check out the VIP area on race day to speak with a SafeHaven representative about our comprehensive programs.  Our VIP area will also have a hot breakfast to warm you up from La Madeleine: Country French Cafe and massage chairs to loosen up those sore muscles.

We would love an opportunity to thank everyone for their overwhelming support, so don’t be shy! Come visit us!!

What can I donate?

On race day, bring your gently used items for the resale shop or new donations for immediate needs. There will be drop off locations near the designated parking areas, and we will help you carry items too.  The Jiggle Butt Run is significant in helping to stock the shelves at the shelter for year round help!Jiggle Butt Run 4 lg
