Remembering SueB

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

The sixth annual SueB 5K Walk/Run and Kids’ race was held on October 4, 2015, in Julia Davis Park. The weather was warm and the sun was shining while more than 240 participated in this year’s festivities. Through sponsorships, donations, and registrations, more than $25,000 was raised for the SueB Endowment Fund at the WCA, to provide safety, freedom and healing for those impacted by domestic abuse on our community.

The annual event is presented by the WCA and the Employees of the Ada County Paramedics Association and held in memory of Susan Elaine Brubaker Newby (SueB). Sue died in 2008 during a mysterious horseback riding incident. After her death, family and friends realized that SueB – her nickname – was likely in an abusive marriage. Sue’s sister, Marjory Sente, and friends, Leslie Hampe and Teresa Andrew, turned to the WCA as a way to honor Sue’s life and increase awareness about domestic violence.

In 2009, Leslie and Teresa planted two trees in Sue’s memory and committed to raising more funds to increase awareness about domestic violence through the creation of the SueB Endowment Fund. Marj, Leslie and Teresa started fundraising with the first “SueB Stroll” in 2010 and have continued to be actively involved with the planning and management of the event which has evolved into the SueB 5K Walk/Run, Kids’ race and family fun day of entertainment in the park.
Through the annual SueB Memorial 5K Walk/Run, more than $75,000 has been raised for the WCA endowment.

“Don’t wait until your sister, daughter or mother is a victim of domestic abuse or sexual assault,” Sente said. “Step forward now and make an investment in the WCA to raise awareness about domestic violence.”
