Run Wild Missoula will donate 20% of race proceeds to YWCA Missoula.  Domestic violence impacts the lives of countless women across all backgrounds, and is the leading cause of homelessness among families with children.  YWCA Missoula is committed to ending domestic and sexual violence because everyone deserves to be safe.  Funds raised will go to YWCA Missoula's Pathways Program, which provides shelter and support to survivors of interpersonal violence.  You can also make an optional donation during registration to further help support this great cause.

Teams: Get a group together and create a team for this year's Diva Day 5K!  Training and running with a group helps promote a healthy and social lifestyle.  Teams are not limited to a certain number of participants or ages.  Be sure to select you are registering with a team on the registration form.  Create or select your team from the drop-down menu during registration.
