3rd annual In It to End It challenge starts July 1, 2022
Join the virtual fundraiser benefitting the Bay Against Abuse Coalition
STAND! For Families Free of Violence, along with four other nonprofit shelter-based domestic violence service providers from around the Bay Area, welcome the return of the San Francisco 49ers and Union Bank as sponsors for the fitness fundraiser. The In It to End It challenge runs from July 1st to July 31st, 2022 and participants can register on the Atlas Go website. This year, NBC Bay Area joins the Coalition as our media sponsor and Anchor Raj Mathai will serve as Emcee for the kickoff event June 29th, 2022.
In a continuation of their long-standing involvement in the Bay Area community to combat domestic violence, the San Francisco 49ers are once again the primary sponsors of the event. “The San Francisco 49ers are proud to support the Bay Against Abuse Collaborative’s ‘In It to End It’ virtual event to end domestic violence,” said Stacy McCorkle, San Francisco 49ers Director of Community Relations. “It goes without saying, an increase in domestic abuse has been one of the many tragedies resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. While incidents and reports of domestic violence have gone up, so have the needs for the agencies who support victims of domestic violence. We encourage individuals and organizations to join our efforts to create awareness and offer survivors of domestic violence a chance at a new life.”
Proceeds for the event are raised by participants who register starting at $25 and funds raised by friends and family supporting the participant’s efforts. Participants log and track their choice of workout activities from July 1st through July 31st and their results may qualify them for prizes and drawings. Examples include activities based on hours, such as meditation, yoga, dancing, stair climbing and weight lifting; or activities based on miles, such as cycling, hiking/walking, running, rowing, swimming, and wheelchair workouts.
