The threat of rain did not prevent over 200 runners from crossing the finish line at the 9th Annual Race Against Violence 5K (RAV), which was held on Saturday, Oct. 20 in Conyers.  

RAV has become an annual tradition for many people in the community as the participants, sponsors  and volunteers begin the weekend carbing up at the pre-race party hosted by Mellow Mushroom in Conyers on Friday night and then meeting at the Conyers First United Methodist Church at 8:15 a.m. on Saturday for the start of the race. The Rockdale County Task Force Against Family Violence, chaired by Judge Nancy N. Bills, began sponsoring the RAV in 2010 and has donated over $70,000 to Project ReNeWal, which serves as the shelter for victims of family violence in our community. Held every October, the annual race also serves to promote awareness during Family Violence Awareness Month.
