“Stop the Silence is eager to again host this important event that gives a voice and support to the victims and survivors of the horrors of child sexual abuse, and provides the public with important information about this profound public health problem,” said Dr. Pamela Pine, Founder of Stop the Silence.

Sponsors of the race include: Women’s Calendar/Women’s Radio, Clear Channel Radio, Coca Cola, Under Armour, Clif Bars, Whatsa Bagel, Breads Unlimited, and others. Additional interested sponsors can contact ppine(at)stopcsa(dot)org.
