The ninth annual “Baguette Run – A First Step against Domestic Violence” to benefit Turning Point will be on Saturday, June 18, and will begin at the Panera Bread café on State Route 95 in Marion at 8 a.m.
The five-kilometer event is to raise funds for victims of domestic violence and their families. All money raised during this event will be donated to Turning Point, a domestic violence program for Delaware, Crawford, Marion, Morrow, Union and Wyandot counties.
Participants may walk or run the course, which will go through the University Heights area south of Panera Bread. The entry fee is $25 and those who register by June 5 will receive an official race T-shirt, organizers said.
