Pace For Peace Is Almost Here!








In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Tri-Valley Haven will be hosting its annual Pace for Peace 5K/10K Run & Walk on Saturday, October 7th, 2023 at 8 AM starting at the Haven’s Community Building, 3663 Pacific Avenue, Livermore. To register, please click the button above.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month which was established to raise awareness and stop violence. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used by one individual intended to exert power and control over another individual in the context of an intimate or family relationship. Each year, Tri-Valley Haven receives approximately 4,000 calls for help. That is approximately 11 crisis calls every day, from local survivors in need. All Pace for Peace proceeds goes towards Tri-Valley Haven programs to serve local survivors and families fleeing domestic abuse.

Tri-Valley Haven’s Pace for Peace has something for everyone, whether you are a serious runner or out for a leisurely walk with friends and family to support a great cause. Chip timing and finisher medals will be provided. Age group awards will be presented. Refreshments are provided for the whole family. The Pace for Peace is a great time for everyone!

If you are interested in volunteering at this event please fill out an application here. If you are already a registered Haven volunteer, please email our volunteer coordinator. For any questions, please email
