Raising Awareness about Domestic Violence and Remembering Susan Newby

 Boise, ID –The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) and The Employee’s Association of the Ada County Paramedics are thrilled to host the 10th Annual SueB Memorial 5K 10K Walk/Run on Sunday, October 6, 2019 in Julia Davis Park.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 This annual event is in memory of Susan Elaine Brubaker Newby (SueB) who died during a mysterious horseback riding incident in 2008 and is now believed to have been the victim of domestic violence. After her death, her friends and family turned to the WCA as a way to honor her life and increase awareness about domestic violence and promote healthy relationships in our community.

“Don’t wait until your sister, daughter or mother is a victim of domestic abuse or sexual assault, step forward now and make an investment in the WCA to raise awareness about domestic violence” said Marjory Sente, Sue’s sister. “This year on October 6 we are celebrating a milestone—the tenth SueB Memorial 5k/10k Walk/Run. Please come join us, I’m both happy and humbled to mark this occasion.”

Families are encouraged to bring their children for the half mile Kid’s Fun Run at 12:30 p.m. and their four-legged friends to run alongside them in the 5K Run/Walk. There will be family-friendly activities, music and fun following the run. Dutch Bros, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Ben & Jerry’s will be on -site with treats available for purchase.

For more information or to register, please visit www.wcaboise.org.

  • The SueB 5k/10k is on Sunday, October 6, 2019 at 1 p.m. in Julia Davis Park.
  • Registration cots: 5K $25, 10K $35.
  • The route will follow Boise’s beautiful Greenbelt heading east.
  • Proceeds from the race will benefit the WCA’s Endowment Fund, which provides safety, healing and freedom for survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.

In 2010, Marjory and Frank Sente Frank planted a seed for the future of the WCA by establishing the SueB Fund within the WCA Endowment. Through the dedicated efforts of Sue’s friends and family over the past decade, the balance of that fund has grown to more than $300,000 – providing sustainability for the organization and crucial community awareness.

“I thank the many donors who have helped to keep my sister Sue’s memory alive through generous contributions,” said Marjory.
