Established in September of 2006, Laura’s March is an annual 5K walk/run fundraising event. The primary goal of Laura’s March is to raise funds to support organizations that work to help end sexual violence. Held in remembrance of Laura during her birth month, the March gathers together hundreds of community members from Chittenden County Vermont, and beyond.
Past Laura’s March beneficiaries include Dirt Divas/VT Works for Women, H.O.P.E. Works (formerly the Women's Rape Crisis Center), Parallel Justice, the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program at Fletcher Allen Health Care, and Women Helping Battered Women.
“I know many survivors of sexual violence who attended Laura’s March and experienced the same hope and awe and peacefulness that I experienced. Laura’s March is a wonderful gift to the Burlington Community.”
–Elle Petcavage, Assistant Director, H.O.P.E. Works
