Story

Be a Superhero. Defend Democracy.

This September, embrace your inner superhero, don your best spandex, and fly on down to the Defending Democracy Fun Run hosted by the League of Women Voters of Salt Lake!

The Defending Democracy Fun Run will be a family-friendly event with games, prizes, food trucks, costume contests and more to delight Defenders of every age! Listen to live music as you register to vote, meet local non-profits, and engage in your community in a safe, fun way! 

100% of proceeds from the Fun Run go directly to the League's Education Fund, a (tax-deductible!) 501(c)3. As a nonpartisan organization, we use these funds to register voters and empower them to both engage in our democracy and make informed decisions of their own.

Assemble at the gate to the International Peace Gardens at Jordan Park (1060 S 900 W) on Saturday, September 28, 2019! Come as your alter-ego, or come as you are — all are welcome at the Fun Run! The 5K run starts at 8:00 am, and the festivities will run until 11:00 am. 

Be the superhero this country needs by visiting www.lwvsl.org to sponsor, register, or volunteer for this great cause.  Our democracy is depending on you.

See you there, Democracy Defender!
