On July 21, 2012, Seattle’s Safeco Field filled with 1,000 runners and walkers participating in the first-ever 5K. This sold-out even builds on a 15-year partnership between the Seattle Mariners and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WSCADV) on the Refuse To Abuse® violence prevention campaign. Pilot Movement Maker Nan Stoops is the executive director for WSCADV.

The Refuse To Abuse® campaign is a 15-year partnership between the Seattle Mariners and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence to promote healthy, respectful relationships. Print, radio, and television public service announcements in both English and Spanish are produced featuring prominent Mariners, reaching hundreds of thousands of people across the Northwest. This year’s campaign features Eric and Kate Wedge, Felix Hernandez, and Franklin Gutierrez, and is supported by Wells Fargo, with in-kind support from the marketing firm Craters of the Moon.
