What We Do


As stated in our mission, Run for Innocence is dedicated to creating a society free of childhood sexual abuse (CSA).  It is an infinitely more daunting task than running the 26.2 miles of a marathon, but we know that every step we take to help increase awareness and help victims of CSA is one step closer to our end goal—a better world for our children.

Run for Innocence will focus on the following programs and services:

Run for Innocence Racing Team:
The team will comprise of the board members and officers of the organization as well as any donors who are interested in joining. All members will be trained on the organization’s mission, objective, and will go through a background check. The goal of the Run for Innocence (RFI) racing team is to increase the public's awareness of the CSA epidemic and the organization’s mission by participating in local racing events (e.g. St. George Marathon, Utah Valley Marathon, etc.).  Whenever possible a staff member of Run for Innocence will participate in these events with the RFI racing team.  Team members will be encouraged to use these events as fund raising opportunities by finding sponsors and other donors.

Victim Treatment Assistance:
The majority of the funds raised by the RFI racing team as well as by any other means will go towards victim treatment assistance.  RFI has developed relationships with treatment centers, clinics, and counseling centers in the Utah area and to provide financial assistance to childhood sexual abuse patients in need.  Run for Innocence is interested in partnering with clinics outside of Utah as well.  If you are associated with or know of a clinic that is interested in partnering with Run for Innocence, please contact us at info@runforinnocence.org.

CSA Awareness Events:
Events will consist of seminars, prevention classes, fund raisers, etc. and will be held at local schools, churches, and businesses interested in partnering with Run for Innocence.

Other services and programs will be added as the need is presented. If you have any questions on usage of funds and donations, please contact us at info@runforinnocence.org.
