Some people run away from polygamy. Others run for it.
Or at least, that’s what will happen Sept. 14 when Holding Out Help has its third annual 5K fundraising run at Draper City Park. The race will raise money for housing, education, and other services offered by Holding Out Help, which assists anyone with a polygamous background access needed resources.
Tonia Tewell, executive director for Holding Out Help, said about 180 people ran the race in 2012, generating as much as $15,000. Organizers hope to double attendance this year. To that end, Tewell said, they added a 10K race for more advanced runners. In addition, the event will include a 1K race for children.
Tewell also said Holding Out Help is raising funds for a community center it hopes to open in Colorado City.
Entry fees for the races range from $15-$35, with discounts for early registration. Draper City Park is located at 12500 S. 1300 East, Draper. For more information or to register, visit holdingouthelp.org/5k" target="_blank">holdingouthelp.org/5k.
